Well, I decided that with work stressing me out and the monsterator just screwing up my life, I decided it was a night to ENJOY beer and brewing, so I took an odd artistic leap with BM's cream of three crops, and ended up with this:

12lbs Maris Otter
4lbs flaked corn
1lb minute rice

2oz [email protected]
1oz [email protected]

Just a couple of pictures of the burners do what they do best - BEAST

Foreground is the KAB6, the background is the old turkey fryer from god knows where. Still helps a LOT!


One more for now...:


when you get so pissed off about a project, many times you forget about the fun that is involved. I'm currently doing that. BACK TO THE BOIL!

Looks like some old fashioned hard core brewing there. I bet it was still fun and relaxing at the same time.

This just made me laugh out loud at work Fecking awesome.

I had the same first thought: Joe flipped over an F-16 engine to brew on. Either that or the keg is part of the Apollo program
