Default Typical Brewday

OK, folks...I am a brewin'! With the laptop, so I can post pics right now...best I'm gonna come to webcam right now.

Here is the very first piece of equipment purchased for a special project:





Here's the basement brewery!



and here is my brew setup...first time I've really done it this way...there was too much grain to use my 5 gal, so I'm mashing in a bag in my 7.5 gallon and using my 9 gallon for the sparge, then running back into the 7.5 gallon to boil



Ooh...I forgot...I installed some more lights, I should use those and take another pic. Let me know if you'd like to see anything specific, besides my organs, of course.

shoot! Somehow deleted pictures of the run-off and the sparge. Oh well...basically I stuck the mash paddle under the bag so it could run-off freely through the spigot. I used 8 gallons and got about 7.5...I'm leaving a gallon behind (keeping it hot) and going to start boiling the mash and run-off. I only get about 0.5 gal absorption with the bag method if I let it drain through the colander.

I would love to brew a session with you. If I'm ever in the Yay area, I'm gonna look you up. I'm supposed to be in Dublin (CA) the first week in May for my wife's baby shower...we are from CA and all her friends and family are out there, but complications with the pregnancy might prohibit us from flying.

However, if we do, it is going to go something like this:

"Hey hun, I'm going to drive to Oakland to hang out with this fool DeathBrewer"

"Who?"

"Doesn't matter...I'll be back at 8. Have fun at your shower."

And I almost got a boil-over from screwing around on HBT!

Sounds like a plan!
