Default My Brew Day

This is my first time posting a brew day. Today I brewed some oatmeal stout. This beer is going to be pretty big. The OG. was 1.074
Anyway, my system is not pretty, but it sure does turn out some fine beer. Oh yeah, if your wonderin why the blocks? One of my pumps died and I've yet to get a new one. Cheers.

Here's a shot of my wonderful false bottom with my run-off going in.

Here's my cooling operation. I needed a pre-chill, the water in AZ is about 85 deg F. right now.

Free, wow, that's great. You've got (or had) pumps, what are the cinder blocks for?

Usually I use a second pump to transfer the wort from the kettle to the fermenter. My pump quit so I've been using gravity.

I would also normally use my second pump to transfer sparge water to the mash tun.
