Default GRABASS test run 1/24

Folster and a couple of my drinking buddies are going to be in my garage on Sunday. Folster and I are doing a 10 gallon IPA and I have a 5 gallon stout I need to make, as well as racking over the Cranky Angel and What-cha-got-stew from the Brewgasm. Also I have my first keg'd beer carb'd (a steam) that, while it tastes just fine, really should be drank

I know its last minute, but if anyone wants to brew or just "help" let me know and I'll get you an addy (between Fuquay and Clayton near 40/42). I have more than enough space for anyone that wants to brew (clean 2 car garage and a little under 1.5 acres of dirt).

This will be a test run for a more proper gathering next month. Speaking of, when do folks want to have another brewgasm but at my place along with some 'Q ?

I dont know if I will be able to make it this sunday. As far as next month I am good any weekend other than valintines weekend, SWMBO has some plans for us that weekend. But any other time should be good for me.


Eric.

I was actually planning on brewing Sunday myself. I'll have to talk to SWMBO, but I may make the trek over and hang out and brew. Any problems with flooding by doing a bunch of chilling or anything? Just don't want your yard to end up like Walkers.
As far as next month, it doesn't look very good for me. I've got friends in town one weekend, a bachelor party another weekend, and a wedding the last weekend I think. Anyways, I'll follow along and poke fun at you all where applicable.

And it looks like it's about 50 minutes from Fayetteville too by the way.

From the center of Fayetteville straight up I-95 to I-40 Google says its 53 minutes to my house. I drive down that way all the time and it takes me right at an hour to get to a Bo-Jangles there just past where 295 ends.

There's a possibility we'll have a tv set up in the garage for those that can't bear to be away from those major sporting events taking place that day.

No worries at all about flooding the yard. Folster has a pump and we plan on doing the cooler/ice thing for a bit, otherwise I have a 5 acre pond we could use if its not raining too much, and yeah... I have a *lot* of land and a big driveway so flooding is pretty much impossible (that and all the grass is brown at the moment anyway except for the crabgrass).

I'll be heating up some of this past year's 'q for lunch.

I'll try my best to be there. Shoot me an address or directions or something! So far as Feb goes, I have to be somewhere out of town the weekend after Valentine's Day but I'm open afterward or before.

You know they have Bojangles in Raleigh right? You don't have to drive all the way to Fayetteville just for a supreme dinner.

Dallas,
I'd love to stop over for an hour or so, watch you brew, drink some of your beer, eat some pork. Please give me your address and let me know when's a good time to come by.
Jeff

I think we're shooting for a 10am start. I'm not particularly interested in the ball games and I have 2 batches to do so I'm no big hurry to get started let alone finish

FYI The best BoJangles is in Plymouth. Its brand new and the bathrooms have those fancy Dyson hand dryers: http://www.dyson.com/dryers/default.asp

Oh, let's not get a best Bojangles fight started. BTW, that's where I went to celebrate my college graduation, no joking. Oh sure, others went to Ruth's Chris and the Angus Barn... Give me Bojangles anytime! Anyway, the best I've been to is anyone that has an "all you can eat" on the menu... That, my friends, is the proof of a good Bojangles.
