Default What day is it kids? It's my 999 day.

I got everything set up last night, rig pulled up to the front garage, grains all weighed and crushed.
Now once the SWMBO gets done making me breakfast I'll get going on it.

I'll also be brewing BM's Centennial Blonde to kill some time while this monster is boiling.

Posting pictures as it goes. (can't do the video thing.. I feel so inadequate )

The rig is set up, water is in the HLT heating up to 180* to preheat the MLT



Here is the sweet grain. The two in the back is the 999 grain and the one in the front is the blonde.



My buddy never came over with his burner so I will need to run and get it or buy one, I need more LP anyways. So once the mash is going I'll make a run to get it all.

Strike water is going in.


Mashed in and got it...


At this point I ran to HD and picked up another burner and another LP tank.

Got home and fired up the kettel that had the 5 gallons of water I used to preheat the tun. I let this boil for 30 minutes and then ran it thru my CFC to clean and sanitize it.

cleaning the CFC



The new burner with one of my converted keg fermenters that will be used as a keggle today.



Mashout water going in.



I ended up with a 75 minute mash because of having to run and get the burner and LP. No big deal.

Sparge is under way




I'm looking at some of the extra grains and hops I have sitting around and thinking I may bust out a 3rd 10 gal batch of something ontop of these two. Not sure yet, we will see how things go from here.

The sparge is done, 14 gal collected. Now the boil has started.



The boil is going strong and the fan is keeping it from boiling over. About a gallon gone this far.

The strike water for the blonde is going in
