Dallas and I did a quick run-down, and we came up with the figure of 100 gallons.

Sounds great!

My brewday started out great, but hit a skid as I was about to stick my chiller in the first 10 gal batch and noticed it froze up and burst in about 6 spots. Luckily I saw this just before I dumped it in the boiling wort. My handy neighbor was able to solder it well enough for use, so finally got that cooled and yeast pitched (OG around 1.081). That batch hit the numbers right on, but the second was suppose to be 15 gal session pale, but ended up around 8-9 gal with an OG of 1.085 because I ran out of sparge water. Now I'm going to end up with 18 gal of ~9% IIPA. The problems made it about an 11 hour brewday.

How often do these events take place? This sounds like a blast that I need to be a part of!! I am interested in future endeavors.

Walker got a few pictures, and Dal's neighbor that came over and snapped off 15 gallons brought a camera you read about in the TR.

preparing to post all pics now.

My three favorites from the day first, and then the rest in no real particular order and without much comment.

First, our host looking particularly 'bumpkin':


The next two I like because of the sun's rays being caught by the lens. Unfortunately, skee is in both of them.

I think this one would make a great avatar:


And this one just looks neat:

We filled this damn trashcan 3 times withspent grain and hops, and I even had to shovel a f*cking compost bin down the creek bank to make room for crap to be dumped:






And a few SWMBO's:





And my fermenter the following day when I loaded it into the car at high kraeusen and brought it home:
