Default HBT Meet-Brew-Share on Jan 19, Menifee CA

Over in THIS THREAD we were throwing around ideas for a meet-up in the Temecula/Murrieta area. I'm just a tad north of there but I'm going to go ahead and pull the trigger on it so here goes...

My wife and I are inviting everyone over to our place in Menifee, on January 19th for a HBT meet-up, cluster-brew, bottle-share, etc. We can use this thread to plan details, and at some point I'll probably start a sign-up sheet just so we can get an idea of who's coming.

So here's the deal: even if nobody shows up, we will be here brewing a 10 gallon batch of something (whatever we're low on at the time), and enjoying our own homebrew all day long. Whoever wants to show up is welcome to do so, in whatever capacity you'd like. If you're new to brewing and just want to watch, that's cool. If you don't want to brew but want to meet some of the other HBT'ers in the area, that's cool. If you just want to bring some of your own homebrew to share, that's cool. If you want to bring your rig and brew a batch, I'll supply the water! If you want to bring some BBQ or do some BBQ on premises (xring?), that's cool. Basically you can come and hang out, and bring/do as much or as little as you want. The only requirement would be that you bring something to share, either your own homebrew or some commercial craft beer.

Here's what we have to work with: I have a large hardscaped back yard (with a pool, but its too cold to use unless you're in the polar bear club), with a 75' X 14' covered patio. I figure we can probably fit over a dozen all-grain brew rigs under there (I'm still an extract brewer). For those who would like to bring their homebrew in corny kegs, I have one 3-faucet kegerator in the house (by the pool table and a large Bev-Air commercial kegerator with 3 faucets (but will hold about a dozen cornies to keep them cold) on the patio. If we have more people than that who want to bring kegs (wow wouldn't that be killer), we can either rotate them, or use picnic taps on the rest. BTW, I am mostly set up for ball-locks but I do have one faucet rigged with pin-lock so I can fit the shorter pin-lock keg at the back of my kegerator. But all of my keg connectors are on flare fittings so they can be swapped easily, and I do think I have an extra set or two of pin-lock connectors somewhere in case we need them. For food prep, I have a normal sized gas grill, and one of those 2-chamber smokers, if anyone wants to fire those up.

My wife and I hope it will keep rolling after the brewing is done and turn into a fun party well into the evening. We have a nice fire pit and lots of wood for it! We have two guest rooms plus a couple of couches to crash on for those who are unable to drive home. If anyone wants to bring their RV to crash in, we have plenty of room for those too.

We'll work out the time, details, etc as people show interest. So who's in?

I'm out. When I talked to the wife about it, the first thing she said was "Isn't that the weekend of your camping event?"
Next time this happens I'd love to go though.
