I'm going to have a fun weekend!
 
Looks as though I'm going to have a great weekend. I have 3 brews lined up, but knowing me, I probably won't wait to start!

From left to right:
Edwort's Haus Ale
My Pumpkin Ale
My Blonde Ale

These are the first 2 recipes I've attempted to come up with, and in fact, these are the first all grain brews I'm doing, so I can't wait to get started!

Good luck - you'll love all grain! :)

gotta love the weekends scheduled around the brewdays! :rockin:
The SWBMO knows when a brewday is comming because I get this sparkle in my eye a couple days before hand!

As predicted, I can't wait until the weekend to start brewing, lol. I had to compromise and go grocery shopping here in a few minutes, but when I get back, its straight to brewing. I'm going to start off w/ the haus ale today, and maybe even get to the pumpkin ale to try and get it done by the end of October. Since I have to give myself something to do this weekend to get out of house work, the blonde ale will come this weekend. More pics to follow!

Enjoy the AG. It's so much more fun.

I'm good on the lot number. Threw my strike water into the MLT to preheat it and found a small leak around the valve. All it took was a little twist and no more leak. I bought a new digital therm. today, calibrated it and found it was reading 209 in boiling water, but no big deal. I doughed in 30 mins ago, but didn't get any pics because I wanted to focus on the process. I got my math mixed up in the heat of the moment and calculated as if my therm. was reading 3 degrees over, instead of under. So, I doughed in at 155, which meant the temp was actually doughed in around 158. I'm not going to sweat it though, because what's done is done and its all a part of the learning process.

enjoy it!!!

Your wort could have been boiling at 209. Your thermometer could be just fine. 158 will give you more body, less fermentables. Which brew was it? Maybe a little sweet for the Ed's Haus. Probably won't hit FG you're expecting, but it will still be beer.
