What to do with 3BBL Mash Tun?

Fill it! Duh.

The Whales mashed 267 pounds of grain for a 65 gallon batch of Russian Imperial Stout.

We got 20 gallons of 1.055 OG "tails" for another little session batch.

and this is 6:06am when I lit the burners to start heating the strike water. 84g strike water, 41g sparge water. The 2 big mamas are 55g on custom Bobby_M stands with 3 burners each. And the kettle in the foreground is 25g that we used to boil up the 2nd runnings (20g of 1050 wort).

Congrats on the epic brew!
We used about 60 lbs of propane.

Found some more pics.

We doughed-in the first 40-50 lbs in buckets until the CPVC manifold was covered

Attachment 31735

Manifold is almost covered

Attachment 31736

Here's the barrel we got for aging the stout in. It was drained the morning my pal picked it up in Kentucky
