Default 20 gal Brew Day - Pics and Video

I regularly brew with a couple of friends, and we split the spoils of our labor. Sat we brewed up two 10 gal batches (hefeweizen and dunkelweizen). One of the guys has his brew stand about 75% done, so right now we only have one stand to work with. We pipelined both batches on my stand, which really only adds about 1.5 hrs to the day, because we can mash the 2nd batch while the first batch is boiling.

It had rained about 9 inches over the two days prior and stopped raining right before we were going to get started. Normally we brew outside on the patio, but we played it safe in the garage so we didn't have to move things later in case it started raining again.

I took some video of the process we use. It's not really intended to be a "how to brew" kind of video. It just gives an idea about my system and how I use it. Forgive the quality (of the video and narrarator).

Mark also boiled some crawfish for a little cajun feast.

Making me hungry for our crawfish boil this weekend. I also noticed the lack of beer being drank in the pics. Other than that, very nice.

Hmmm. I see beer in every pic. Trust me, we drink plenty of beer when we brew together.

I see beer in every pic as well, I also see kids hanging out with dad's so that may be a reason for non-excessive drinking. Looks like a good day with your friends and father/son time.

Good point, IP. Our group is a pretty responsible bunch. We like to drink beer, but nobody's getting drunk, especially when the women aren't around to help with the squids (they were all gone together this weekend).
