125# of grain.
 
I have a weekend and 125 lbs of Maria Otter

It's one of those times were I've run out of Gas C02 and other supplies. Even the battery in the digi therm needs replacing.

This morning is going to be a supply run. The Weather has forecast rain all weekend, I brew out side. but I have 3 carboys and 6 cornies empty.

Any one want to guess how many batches I'll manage over the weekend?? :ban:

where the heck are you getting rain? It's so dry and hot in va my yard is like concrete.

Just back now.
I thought I'd risk my nearest brew shop (neer the gas retailers) No Chocholate malt, other malt in 300g bags only. So I had to drive 50 miles for a proper shop.
SWMBO spotted a few shops along the way.

I don't think I'll manage the lot.
RAIN, Don't talk to me about rain. We've had no summer!!!!!!!!

It must be nice to pass a few shops on a short drive.....sigh.

Orfy 08-18-2007 01:08 PM

Well if I ever get started.....
Open a bottle of craft brew and the phone goes. Dad, can you help me lift something.

So it's 14:00 and I'm about to put the mash water on.

Sounds like you need a fast fermenter, as well as the usuals. You can make three batches, nothing one of those big ugly golfer's umbrellas won't solve. I wouldn't mind a bit of rain myself. It hasn't been as dry as last year (89 days without rain), but still well below average.

I hear ya. It's the same here. I was on my boat for the first time this summer last Sunday. The lake last year was a little puddle due to the drought and this is is flooded. It's in the flood plane right now and expected to keep rising with all this rain Texas has been getting.
