I am brewing Saturday too, I have to dust off the equipment though as I last brewed on 2/21. Anyways, I will have the laptop out there seeing how yours is going and maybe posting some pics from mine too.

Sounds good bro...

I have not brewed since late February either, but have been actively working on the rig this past week.

Looking forward to seeing your brew day too!

Ahoy hoy,
Nice of you all to honor the wifes birthday by brewing on it. I too am planning to brew this weekend. Ill be tapping a few birch trees tonight, so as to have about 15 gallons of sap for my 10 gallon brew. Im going to brew a batch of Orange Cascade, and use the birch sap for the water allotment. It should be ready for contest time coming up here in 2 months or so. I have a pre prohibition pilsner thats been lagering for a year. Im going to enter it, as well as the OC, and my hibiscus wheat ale.
I only hope the weather holds here.
Hope everyones batch is sucessful
A great day to all!

I think I am going to follow your lead and try a thinner mash this weekend. I only have a 8.43LB grain bill

Edit: I see you have less than that too. Looks like a nice house ale.

Yes, it is a nice haus ale... doing a little tweaking here and there.

Thin mash, low mash temp, toss in some lightly kilned 20L and caramel pils etc... mmm mmm goodness.

.036" gap on the Barley Crusher as well

Where do you buy your water?

Also, what is this no chill chill you speak of?

I get mine at Kroger... no chill, means no chilling prior to draining the kettle.
