AS LONG AS WE ALL PROMISE NOT TO FLOOD MY LAWN (again)....

We'll be having a group brew session at my place in Cary, NC on Saturday, January 9th.

For all that chose to brew-along, our group goal is to find the most efficient way to get our wort chilled (I'm serious about the lawn flooding thing... it has still never really recovered from the 4-man session in 2007.)

We can at LEAST use a CFC with perhaps an ice-bath pre-chill. A possible zero-waste solution would be to get fancy and pump the sure-to-be-frigid water out of my 55gal rainbarrel and into an IC or CFC instead of using the tap and re-circulate the water back into the barrel.

Anyone got a small non-food-grade sump or utility pump?

Mas fina!

I have a 350gpm pond pump that I use to recirculate ice water through my IC. I'll definitely try to make the brew day, but even if I can't you are welcome to borrow the pump.

NICE!!! I have a CFC as well if we need another. I have never used it since I just received it through the pay it forward thread. I can always get it cleaned up and tested before the Brewgasm commences. Oh, and count me in on this one. If there is enough interest and brewers, would we be interested in splitting up a sack of 2-row? As long as Walker doesn't mind us using his mill and whatnot. Just a thought, I'm the rookie here.

Excellent. Thanks. How much oomph does that pump have? (How high can it lift the water?)

I could go in on a bag of grain. It'll eventually get used. No problem with anyone using my mill. I have been cranking it with my cheap-o cordless drill. One batch of grain just about saps the battery. Anyone can use the mill, but I get dibs on the battery. It's hand-cranking for the others.

If I remember the specs right, it's good for 7' or so with 10' being its shutoff point.

And I hope no one was confused by my typo. That should read 350 gallons per HOUR; GPH not GPM. Although 350GPM would be pretty freaking impressive.

I can probably bring some grains up with me... Got probably 30 lbs of pale malt and hopefully 50 lbs of pilsner coming soon.
