I suggest we go and kidnap him instead. At least then we can assure ourselves of good beer. If this is in fact reality, it would be great to have a head count for those staying overnight.....me being so responisible and all.
oh...and the pig......would you kill it already so we can make some beer together.

so what do you folks usually bring to these gatherings anyway?

Do you all bring your whole setup or do you scale back and do extract? How does it work having that many brews going at once? Trying to figure out what I will bring/brew

Bring your whole setup, propane, burner, MLT, etc. You will be out of your domain so maybe do an easy beer like a pale ale or sumpin. On the other hand there are several experienced brewers there so maybe a more complex beer can be done... Decisions, decisions. One thing I would recommend is using dry yeast or the yeast Dean provides. It is from the brewery down the road and you can get half a mason jar of it. Yum!

Well, for everyone, it's a little bit different. My setup is completely portable. I'll be bringing a couple burners (gonna buy a second one for the decoction, so I can keep heating sparge water at the same time). I'll have my mash tun, keggle, and wort chiller. I'll bring a spare hose to hook up my chiller, and if I can put my hands on it, I've got a four-way splitter for the outside faucet.

2nd Street also had the brilliant idea last time of bringing this portable workbench; I've got something similar that I use as well, so that I can keep all my stuff together and to make it easier to drain the mash tun.

Nothing says you can't scale back and go extract, though. You're welcome to borrow my chiller, or any of my other gear, if I'm done before you. I'm hoping to be done early so I can relax.

BTW - I've got a bottle of Russian River's Santification to bring and share. This beer is 100% fermented with Brettanomyces, so I'm really, REALLY interested in seeing how it tastes.

Oh, and don't forget to bring the homebrew! Nothing starts the day off better than a Russian Imperial Stout!

Two weeks in the bottle is A-OK!

Just don't be offended if Ray McNeill picks out a slight off-flavor of sour apple...

Here are the players for Saturday:
The_bird
Vermicous
Knights of Gambrinus
2nd Street
Hippie
Evanmars
rhag1128

Is anyone else in?
Bird- see about bringing that 4-way for the water.
Hippie- bring those burners even if you aren't brewing.
Bring some garden hose if you have it. I have 3 sections of 20-50 feet to spare.

I have a couch to send to the dump, so maybe I'll go ghetto and set it up in the backyard for a place to sit before I send it on it's way.

I'll provide the Russian Imperial Stout. I have some aging from earlier this summer. I'll also have some Simcoe Pale ale on tap, and possibly my Imperial IPA if I don't finish it off this week.

I'm definitely going to be firing up the grill in the backyard, but I'm on the fence as to make pizza or just burgers, and dogs & bbq.
Any volunteers to bring a green salad, and chips, and salsa?

I make a really tasty Thai noodle salad, if there's interest.
