Hey, I'm getting excited! Anybody else? I'll be going 150 miles one way just to watch.

Rockin. I'll filter the water early tomorrow and toss in Campden for good measure so it should be ready. I'll also have plenty of coffee roasted yesterday.

WOW!!! What a great time I had. Lots of people and Eric was really helpful by opening up his house to others. He even had KILLER kkkkoffeeeee! Yum!!!
Thanks guys for letting me walk around and get in the way as I asked questions over and over and over. Picked up LOTS of ideas and I guess it's all up to me now to figure what I want to do. I know now after watching four different people do all grain that I am through with the partial mashes. The only difference is that I need a bigger kettle and a few other parts for the cooler.
The first annual was a rocking success and I cannot wait until the second annual.

It was great to meet you guys! I lost count but at one point we may have had over 12 guests . Hopefully Soper will post some pics soon.

Next year I will try not to confuse the dates when I send out the invite...

Forgot to mention, last night I racked the second half of my 10-10-10 and pitched a cup of Flanders Golden Ale slurry into Il Bastardo -- which is one half Soperbrew's leftover Munich Dunkel wort and one half Jonathan's leftover Imperial Stout wort re-boiled for 10 minutes with 1/2oz of Magnum FWH. It's sitting in my Mr. Beer this morning getting nice and happy.

Hear, hear! I was very happy to hear that announced!

(Shoot, at about that time, I was happy to hear anything, or to be able to take two steps in a row in the same direction )

LOL. Thanks guys. We enjoyed a bottle yesterday out of a Belgian bottle carbonated to 4 volumes, it's mighty tasty. It is the Big Brew saison recipe "Saison du Mont" out of Zymurgy brewed on 5/2/09. Only mod to the recipe is I used a half a jar of orange marmalade instead of the sweet peel, and my efficiency was about 85% so the OG was 1.060 (I think). WLP565 took it down to 1.014 at 90*F then I racked to secondary and pitched some dry wine yeast to get it down to 1.006 after a few months. I will post the recipe, think I will call it Saison du Monk.
