Doing a 5 gallon batch of Hefewiezen this afternoon. My last keg of alt recently spit. I need something quick for the Stanley Cup Finals.

Too long.

Using my banjo burner and 2000w heatstick together, I brought 8.5 gallons to a roiling boil in just under 15 minutes yesterday. I turned off the propane, and the heatstick held the boil for 90 minutes just fine.

I was looking at 4500w 240v water heater elements at THD yesterday morning. They had 10 gallon Rubbermaid water coolers for $37 and change, too. I need to get the all electric conversion going soon.

I brewed up 5 gallons of Graff/cider yesterday and it's happily bubbling away in the back room. I have a Cooper's Mexican cerveza kit on hand, but alas, no free fermenter. I'll be going to the LHBS next weekend to pick one up, because my Mr. Beer, 6.5 gallon pail, 5 gallon better bottle and 3 gallon carboy apparently just aren't enough. Okay, I may be headed down a path of excess here...

Its a well worn path. I have six beers fermenting right now. Plus a few empty fermenting buckets that need to be filled.

Had a great brew session yesterday, 10G of a Pacific NW Bitter, first outdoor brew and first 10G brew. Today spent the morning cleaning bottles, cleaning kegs, and getting the brewhouse (I mean garage) organized.
