Went to the Burp meeting yesterday. Sat thru the lager talk and learned a lot. Great group of people. I'll be making this a monthly event. Who here was there. I tried to spot people but couldn't put usernames with faces.

Default Burp

I am a regular attendee, at least for the most part. Missed the last 2 due to life getting in the way. Its like a brewfest and picnic rolled into a great day.

I'm pretty sure it was the recipe thread from here at HBT. I had a really bad brew day when I did that. Ended up having a hop bag break up and whole leaf got everywhere gumming up my plate chiller and generally causing havok.

During the whole mess I must have thrown out the 2oz of Chinook I was keeping for dry hopping so ended up using Centennial instead. We'll see how it turns out. it's been on the gas for 24 hours now. Hopefully in about 7-10 days I'll be pleasantly suprised :P

I did managed to make it to home depot today during lunch and got just what I needed to throw together a Hop Spider this week. Not gonna let those whole leaf hop packs get me down! :P

I'm interested in making one of those hop spiders as well. I did use a nylon bag with his last IPA I brewed so hopefully that will help it be nice and clear...don't want to worry about sediment.

I'll be brewing a Belgian trippel, worts heff and potentially my first sour in two weeks...in what will be a brewing trifecta weekend while the wife and kid is away.

In for the group...

Just the neighborhood. We will set up a group after the first club meeting. Tentatively scheduled for the 11th.

I picked up a stainless steel sink garbage disposal drain and a 36" stainless rod from HD today. Tomorrow I'll try and weld the rod onto the drain. It's really thin so I'm worried I'll burn through the drain, but it's worth a try.

I'll post a pic if it works.

For Pellets I just let them go wild in the boil kettle. I usually whirlpool and have a side pickup tube so the trub is usually out of the way.

It's the Simco and Citra that I have in whole leaf (because that's all I could find) that I've been having trouble with lately. Hoping this spider takes care of that.
