Sorry to hear about your loss. My SWMBO and I have had Berners for a while... 3 of them... and we've lost two over the last two years. Jake as a two year old (histeosarcoma... nasty..nasty dog cancer stuff) and then Benjamin our elder-statesman, the 8 year old just about two months ago to (osteosarcoma... bone cancer).

12 is a really really long life for the breed. They're great dogs. Sorry again...

Thanks again for all the kind words. It was a rough couple weeks after he was put down.

The good news is that my mother decided to get another one!

This is Bosco - He's not ready to come home yet but the first week in august he will be!! apparently he was the first one to walk from one part of the house to the other, only because he was hungry! apparently he has been nursing non stop and is going to be a big boy:




This week there is going to be a buttload of progress (I hope). My plan is to put another coat of rust doctor on today and also apply it to the top of the freezer. I am also going to be getting some tie downs for the interior.

I plan on painting the entire base coat on tuesday, and running the interior setup on thursday.

Wednesday is my day of rest, because I just picked up this bad boy on friday.....



Thank you Anthony_Lopez for this bad ass unit!!! I can't wait to brew on Wednesday with this, and then again on Saturday (2 15 gal batches!).

I will update with pictures all this week. I'm really motivated to get this thing over and done with. I'm fed up with not being able to enjoy it.

I agree, 12.5 gallons in a 15.5g keg was really close to the top.

We are using 2 kettles, and my intention was to control the boil very carefully

i think that's everyone's intention

my 12.5 G boils are scary come hop additions. I don't think i'd go for over 13 ever. But I've also never tried those foam control drops. They could be magical.

Just wait until you hit 14 gallon boils! When you do, make sure to use Foam Control to avoid boil overs.

Alright, here's what's happening:

This is the lid getting covered in rust dr




These next 4 pictures are within 3 minutes of each other. It's amazing.






Pretty crazy huh? Everything is drying right now. I'm getting my MLT situated now.
