Which was the beer where he served as consultant and the dude sparged for about four hours and wound up with over 28 gallons pre boil?

HAHA... that was my buddy Mike and a friend of his. They were brewing one of their first all-grain batches at my place.

Classic PTN

1) pretend you are the world's foremost expert
2) pull pin and roll sht grenade in the form of "advice"
3) leave
4) sht grenade explodes, leaving everyone cursing PTN and wishing for him to suffer a painful death.

F'ing A, I'm a legend in my own time.


Just for the record....

U1. A walk off home run.

U2. We added a couple extra oz of hops in the belief that we wanted to slightly increase the bitterness to balance the sweetness. My portion is still in a wooden cask down in my cellar. I haven't tried it in ages. It was fine the last time I did.

U3. Didn't finish fermenting, stuck at 1.070 or so

U4. Ditto but down to 1.060ish

Fark. I'm a bit in the wrapper. I injured my R knee a few weeks ago at work, some farktard sociopath wigged out when we told him, "Ya Dude, you're not goin' home, you just won yourself a 30 day, all expenses paid vacation at the mass Detox Center in Bridgewater. And No, it's not negotiable." So Shetheels suddenly turns back into a 130 # Olympic boxer. (No sheet, this farktard was a professional boxer.) By the time I threw my well nrth of 200# arse onto the pig pile shet heels had dusted three security guards.

So whats my farkin' point? I don't remember.


Oh ya, I ended up at the bottom of the pile of arseholes wrestling on the floor and I farked up my knee. I went to PTyesterday and my leg was killing me when I got home this morning so I hit the gin. (Percocet was an option but gin is an old friend.) And while my leg feels better I'm a bit under the weather as far as posting Utopia advice. So if you can hold on till this afternoon, I'll try then.

PTN

No problems. I have some prep to do for this and don't expect to start this thing for a few weeks.

Step 1. Make sure you have propane. LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of propane. And, make sure to set aside a twelve-hour block of time, just for the boil.

He's too under the weather to post about beer but has no problem boring all to tears with his uber-interesting story about wrestling a crack head.

(shaking my head per usual)

Before I head off to bed.

Blue. Read every 8th or so post on the original U1 thread. Everything we did is in there. A bit obfuscated, true, but in there.

Bird... You neglected mentioneing having an ex HBT hall monitor standing by to watch for boil overs...

Dakota... Until your check clears you have NO fingers to point. (By way of explanation... I sell my kegerator to Dakota in May. He gives me $5.00 as a deposit. As we are leaving on a 150 mile bike ride in the pouring rain in June he hands me a check, written in magic marker, for the balance. I'm ask him if he's serious. You had to be there to understand. It's farking raining buckets.

"Here's the check for the Kegerator."
"Are you serious?"
"Sure. It's good. Just cash it by today at noon."
"uhhh it's a farkin monsoon. How 'bout you pay me later? With cash."
"Sure. No problem."

I'm still waiting.



To Cape... 'Surely you enjoyed the last story... And stop calling me Shirley!!!"
