Default Father's Day Brew with pictures

I brewed me up 10 gallons of http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/bms-...its-ipa-87310/ on Father’s Day. Tis a nice IPA, I recommend it . My youngest helped out; it was, after all, Father’s Day . He measured out the hops and was responsible for every addition. Seven additions for a total of 8oz. I took some pictures.


I brew out back on my deck. Here’s my set-up.



First wort hopping - 2 oz of Nugget.



The boil - I love the smell.



Close enough for government work.



And into the buckets.



Dinner wasn't too bad either, it was, after all, Father's Day.

That's a funky looking sparge tank. I don't think I've ever seen a pot like that.

Yep the very same. It was my kettle until I noticed a pot gathering dust on a shelf in my brother’s garage. He had no use for it, so I gladly took possession.

I don’t really know. As I mentioned it came to me second hand and I’ve never taken the time to determine capacity. That’s probably about 13.5 gallons in the boil picture. So it could definitely hold another 5 gallons. All I need is a bigger cooler (saw one at BJ’s just the other day ) and I can do 15 gallon batches.
