I'm just over an hour from bird's. Chill has a little longer run. It would have been shorter if he could follow directions.

I think thats killer you all get together for brewdays. I would like to get something like that going out here. Did you all meet here on the forum or did you know each other before brewing?

Nah, we all met here. Glibbidy hosted a get-together last December that we all went to (along with a bunch of other guys). Pretty sure it was your mead that we were drinking after the brewing was done (damn good, too, if it was yours!). 2nd Street and I had met up the week before at the HBS, but it's been this forum that's gotten people together.

There've got to be people around here who are within driving distance of you - post something in the "gatherings" section and see if anyone wants to group-brew. LOTS of fun, and great to sample everyone's creations.

It never seices to amaze me how brewing can draw people together. one of my brew buddies around here I met in a hardware store, we were both buying brewing equipment, and excited as hell about it I might add. thats really killer you all get together. How did the day turn out? what did you all brew? and thanks for the kudos on the mead from last year.

I made a cupboard cleaner Brown Ale, 2nd Street made Kolsh and bird was all about the wiezen. Bird's daughter, Cassie, made... a mess!



Pics:



Up to no good!



2nd Street pretends to fly as bird pours some water into a pot.



Fly sparging with minimal resources.



Playing with gasses is fun!

That damn electric turkey fryer I thought I wasted $70 on last winter actually does a damn fine job of heating sparge water, especially when I'm using my 5 gallon stockpot to do a decoction. It was pretty useful having a ready supply of preheated water when mash temps needed to be corrected, as well.
