Indeed. I didn't pitch onto a huge cake, just a 3 pint starter (shaken, not stirred...yet), and 12 hours later, the krausen is about 4 inches deep. Hasn't hit the blowoff tube yet, but I think it will.

Yes...Yes it does. I bet his primaries tremble as well.

Well, took the day off from werk cuz i'm sick (which is true) but decided to brew to help me relax. i'm taking it easy on this one, not getting to critical of everything, especially since i'm brewing in my kitchen. here goes...

ingredients picked up fresh from morebeer...i already had some of the hops and the safale-05



my only complaint from them is the mill. it's set too crush the grains far too much. shreds the poor little guys...

here's my pots hard at work



i heated 2.5 gal to 166, 3 gal to 167 and brought 1 gallon to a boil, just in case

i preheated the mash tun by rinsing it out good with hot water, then i added the pots one at a time, checking the temperature each time



i ended up needing the boiled gallon, but it worked perfectly! i mashed in at 154F!!!!!! like i said, not being too perfect, but it's always nice when things work out anyway!

I like being next to the window...makes me think i'm brewing outside or something.



more to come! have to start heating the sparge water...it takes a LLOOONNNGG time!

Just finished this up. My longest brew day EVER, and I still need to finish the clean up. Deathweed came over for the brew and we came out with 11.75 gals of black goodness at 1.082 and 78 IBUs. We were shooting for 11 gals, but we had to boil part of the wort for a while in a 2nd keggle and combine them together. I'm happy we were close on the OG target and ended up with a little extra wort. My keg MLT was barely big enough for the 35.4 lbs of grain, and I was worried my giant hop bag wasn't going to hold all 11 ounces of hops (3 oz Warrior pellets and 8 oz Fuggles leaf). All in all, a great brew day. I hope the RIS lives up to all the work we put into it. I couldn't find our camera or I would post up some brew porn.

Default This should get interesting....

i did my runnings with the help of several pots





and i ended up with 8 gallons!!!

so i decided to use 3 pots with 4 gallons in 1 and 2 gallons in each of the others.



i'm splitting the hops accordingly.

next time i try to brew between multiple pots, remind me to do it with a smaller beer!

if i end up boiling off ~1 gallon from each, it will be perfect! i'll keep you posted!

Wow, that looks insane! But this is kind of an insane beer to brew, so it probably fits.

So here's the brewing update...

I'm done.

Seriously though, it was a very very smooth brew day. Got started too late to do the two brews I had planned (I was going to follow up the RIS with EdWort's Bee Cave Kolsch) but I wasn't upset about it. Mash went very well, hit my temps perfect. Although I have to say I was rather confused by BeerSmith. I'm just not used to it throwing me curveballs like this. I mashed in 22.19Q water, held for 60 minutes. Drained the mash tun to get 4 gallons of first runnings. Then, following BeerSmith's instructions, I sparged (batch) with 3.15 gallons of water. Seeing as how they told me I was looking for a boil volume of 6.32 gallons, I was kind of confused. So I just chucked it all in the keggle and boiled the piss out of it. 90 minutes later, I had about 5 1/2-6 gallons of beautiful black tasty tasty wort.

Chucked in my 1/2 gallon of starter and I was a happy man! I'll keep you informed on the fermentation process.
