Did you want that propane burner I have?

It is a beautiful day, the brew session is going spectacularly aside from my cordless drills battery dying. It smells and looks amazing.
Brew turned out almost perfect. The 'empty' propane tank managed to hold out through the sparge, the other one lasted the entire boil. The new BK worked like a charm, though leaked a little around one of the weldless fittings (lost maybe 2 tablespoons through the boil). Had to move a zombie dust clone batch to keg because I needed the fermenter. What a great problem to have, full fermenters.

And through all this I had an enthusiastic assistant brewer (a friend who wants to learn to brew, has helped me on one other batch before.)

I don't want to jinx myself, but things are going well here too and the day is damn glorious!

Edit: I jinxed myself. It rained a bit and my 5 gallon batch turned into 3.5 in the fermenter. Ugh. Dialing this **** in is not easy at all.
My new tenants are great people, one overdid it on apfelwein last night. At least one or two of the three of them want to help me brew in the future, the other I am going to teach to use my smoker.

I am sorry your batch didn't go as planned. Dialing in is a huge pain, but once you manage it you are set.

I mazed today, and burned my foot in the process (I had to boil a liter of water, because honey is troublesome to work with). If I'm able, I'll brew tomorrow.

Brewing an all Centennial session beer with pale ale malt, golden oats, biscuit, and c40. I will probably use s05 or Mangrove Jacks M44. I am also hoping to brew a Black IPA following the El Jefe clone in the IPA book. I've got some 1217 in a starter for that one.

I read that drinking is bad for you. That's when I decided to quit reading..

Woof. Long day today, forgot I had to keg a couple of batches before I did the two I had planned for today. Got the kegging done while strike water heated up, then did the American Wheat and a Dark per the plan.

Ibuprophen and a nice Citra Bomb were both welcome when it was all over

Ferm fridge is full, carb fridge is full, keezer has all six faucets running cold and normal. Life is good!

Did an oatmeal stout yesterday. Came out perfect. Had my thermometer break and my backup freak out cuz it got wet during sparge. I'm pretty sure I sparged with like 155 f water, but still got 85% eff.! OG ended up at 1.061. Target was 1.059.
Then I took a nap, and drove to a friends house and helped him brew a Wookey Jack Rye IPA clone. Tasty

Read someone's post from yesterday that they were having 56F weather. I'd give an eye tooth for something around the 40F to 50F range which would mean the garage water source would be unfrozen. I don't mind the cold...just hate carrying 30 gallons of water from house to detached garage and then having to go back inside to rinse stuff off.
