The weather is grey and around 55°f and just about to go dark.

I'm doing other things and chilling so there is no rush on this. I let the mash sit well over an hour. I normally open it up after 45 minutes.

Same here, grey and dark, and last night it rained a TON and brought in a cold front, was around 55 this morning, probably up to 65 by now though. That's normal weather for the UK though, no? It was at least everytime I've been there.

orfy, some of your pics crack me up. I'm afraid you "just might be a (British) redneck."

I think I just might be. I Brew my own beer. I grow my own food, I live off the land when I can. I build my own junk. I drive a 4x4, I have dogs. (I just don't interbreed)

KISS all the way.

This is what counts.




People say this hobby costs money.... I'm way in front on the $$$£££ thing..
Cost of this brew. £10 - $20 including propane and sundries and it's not a cheap brew.
That's a saving of £1 a pint on store bought or £1.50 a pint at the pub. Lets say I did half store and half pub that's a saving of £50 a batch

The saving on 3 batches has paid for my brewing equipment.
The saving on 4 batches has paid for my kegging equipment.


I will actually get round to building a proper brew stand. (But it won't be like anything you've seen.)
