If you guys can pack up a lot of the brewery (within reason) I encourage you to do so, I know I would, just so I have all of my stuff on hand, so it was obvious on how to do it.

I must say im jealous I don't have all these toys, I could bring a 20 QT pot, if that would be helpful......

jezter6 01-23-2008 10:10 PM

Include my roommate in your RSVP as well. He doesn't post much on the boards, but I'm sure if we're brewing, he'll be there.

Kevin Dean 01-23-2008 10:38 PM

Signature link updated. :)

I'll bring on more piece of equipment: a camera. Just warning you all now!

Any ideas on what to brew?

98EXL 01-23-2008 11:08 PM

claphamsa: nah, don't even bother, just bring yer carboy and airlock :) (don't forget beers)
jezter: updated (I know he'd be coming, but just never wrote it down)
Kev: updated

As for food...if you want to bring some, by all means, knock yourself out. Once again, when I do plan things, I am kinda a nazi, so let us all know

As for what to brew, I'm just going to throw this out there:

IPA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

in a year, try it now!

I have plenty of apfelwien on hand too! Sweet and not so sweet versions

claphamsa 01-24-2008 12:31 AM

mine is very dry. i back loaded it with lactose, and its good.... but i wont do that again.......

I think to try a reasonable clone ill need to be in all grain........ and i dont even have the stuff to do that yet. but thats the goal! mmm hops!

Kevin Dean 01-24-2008 03:49 AM

I'm not "into" hoppy beers, but an IPA to bottle up and savor is certainly on my list. I suppose that would be a good day to do it!
