SNIZZLE fest Group Brew All Grain Extravaganza!
 
OK, let's plan something out. Might as well take advantage of the nice weather!

We can use my garage, so I'll offer to host unless anyone wants to pitch their place up instead. Here are my only requests: bring your own sanitizer and propane and please haul your spent grains home. I have two hoses to use for everything we'll need and my CFC (one hose for CFC in, one for CFC out). If you have a splitter and extra hose, please feel free to bring it along with any equipment, like a chiller or anything else.

While I have a few extra pieces of equipment, I'd recommend you bring everything of your own. I have two-tiered shelving for people who need gravity and an outlet and a pump to move everything through the chiller.

There's an LHBS about 4 miles away in case anyone needs any last minute gear or ingredients.

Over the next two weekends, who's free when? I typically don't have weekend obligations but I need to clear it ahead of time. I'm heading out of town for Thanksgiving, but I'll be back that Saturday and Sunday.

Let's plan something out. If I don't have your e-mail addy, please PM me so we can move some the planning off-line.

I'm having my knee scoped on Wednesday, so I won't be brewing for a while, but I could definitely join you for the day. However, this weekend I'll still be recovering at home.

This weekend is a bit quick, I'm thinking another week or two.

Depending on how many people are going to brew, a space heater probably won't be necessary. I'd think that 3 or 4 burners going would keep my attached garage pretty comfy.

Been there, done that. Good luck! Don't worry, you'll be up and around in no time!

I'm kinda in the same boat as all my stuff is packed. And Turkey Day weekend is out for me, as I move that weekend. But I'd be happy to just be within proximity of someone brewing; it's been so long since I actually brewed myself! I have plenty of grain, hops and a few different yeast strains to pitch in if somebody else wants a partner.

Hope it goes alright Ed. Good luck with that.

The weekend of the 16th sounds like it might work best for my buddy who can't get off work after the 23rd or something. But I'm coming no matter what.

I might be able to do the weekend of the 16th.

I'm an extract brewing noob, but would dig the opportunity to hang out and observe the process and help out anyway I can. Not much to bring equipment wise, but I could always kick in a few brews. Saturday the 17th would be ok by me.

Cheese, I also scored some SN Harvest Ale and a few other "not in IL" brews in Ohio. Happy to throw some your way. I made a post in the Homebrewing photos thread. I'll PM with my email.
