Anybody brewing today?

Since I am off work, I am brewing a 8 gallon batch of house amber. Five gallons will be ale, fermented with US-05, three gallons will be lager, fermented with Wyeast 2206 Bavarian Lager.

The boil is almost done now...

Tomorrow (Christmas) evening for me. The wife has to work and it's going to be warmer than today.

Was doing a mini-mash and the thermometer stuck at 145 degrees... so I kept slightly upping the temp. When I got concerned, I tried another thermometer and the actual liquid temp was nearly 190. It was somewhere between 150 moving up to 190 for 15-20 minutes.

I was planning on brewing today... but I was told to wait till Santa comes tomorrow.

hmmm... could it be a kit? or a New Cooler? or a SABCO?

I'm hoping for SABCO.

C'MON SANTA!
