Well bird if we can make it an early start I can do it. I checked in with SWMBO and we have the banquet for our bowling league that night(6PM) As long as I can be back by 4 to 5ish to unload my stuff and get cleaned up I can do it. Any later and I'll have to wait for the shindig in the summer.

Not a problem, 2nd. Sure I'll be up early getting stuff together and mashing in myself. Probably work best if brewing is staggered a bit (I only have the one garden hose, although I'll hook up a splitter somehow).

If I remember correctly either 2nd or Chilly brought a splitter to my house last time. We could also possibly daisy chain the chillers together.

Is there a term for brown-nosing your underlings? ;D

I wish I could come down for this! One day...

I had the splitter. I picked up a second one so if needed we can split the split as it were and run three lines. Provided bird has the hose. And from his sig quote from Yooper it seems he does

Was that your splitter that put as much water on the ground as was in the hose?

I might need some of you gents to bring along a spare hose if you have one (I have but the one, although I plan to buy a second here fairly shortly). I'll try and get a splitter hooked up that's a little less, uh... ghetto than the one before...

That was my freeze proof faucet that was not cooperating, and not the splitter.

I also have plenty of hose to bring along, and then there is the hose.

This is off topic but i figured this would be the right topic for fellow New-Englanders. At my LHBS in marlbourough mass has this on their site: (Not sure if anyone has looked into this)
GUEST BREWERS WANTED

How it works:

1. Strange Brew will provide all ingredients for a 5 gallon batch of beer (*except water).

2. NOW OPEN TO THE FIRST EXTRACT BREWER TO RESPOND! UNLIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE FOR ALL-GRAIN BREWERS!!!
Is anyone reading this? That's free Beer! (*Some restrictions may apply.)
This offer is usually for ALL GRAIN BREWING ONLY

3. We will provide the patio to brew on, ingredients and rinse water. You must supply all of the equipment, and brewing water.

4. You take the brew home with you to ferment. We ask that you bring back a 6 pack (or reasonable equivalent) for tasting during subsequent brewing sessions. You keep the rest, thus the FREE BEER!

5. Demo's will be on Saturdays and/or Sundays, weather permitting. (The front patio is covered.)
www.home-brew.com

Seems like a good deal to me if anyone were interested.

Man, I'd love to go--really want to get a good demonstration of AG. Sadly, that's my SWMBO's birthday.
