I'm in. I haven't done a group brew before. I assume I should bring all my brewing gear, grains, and some sampling/critiquing beers. I'll toss my butane catering burner in the car, too. It's only 10,00BTUs but might be handy for heating mash/sparge water and the like. What else can I bring?

Yep, bring all your stuff.
Bring your garden hose.
If everyone is in agreement, let's all bring a little something for "Toys For Tots"

What time are we planning on this happening?
Are you serious about the hose thing?
I am so lazy...Can I bring a no-boil kit?

Sunday morning (12-02) @ 0800
Yeah, we'll each need a hose for chilling. Walker's got a splitter.

I'm planning on coming.

I may not be able to stay long enough to brew, but I'd like to hang out for a while at least.

Boston - I'll PM you for directions.

I'm in.

I got the old brewing machine greased up for a solo journey yesterday and things went pretty smoothly (amazingly well considering that I hadn't brewed in about 9 months). I'll have to make a trip to the brew shop to pick up what I need, but I think I'll try and pump out a fresh batch of Holy Grail on the 2nd.

As for hoses: I can a couple of hoses, and I've got 2 or 3 splitters around here so we can share the spigot.

Great! I'm in! That gives me a few days to finish riggin' up my porta-mash stand! Hopefully it'll weigh in under 20 lbs, collapse flat, have a small footprint, and hold up 300 lbs. You'll be amazed! Or perhaps burned. I recommend staying 15' back...
