I think I'm seeing sideways right now, I'll try to load Chilly Haze's pix when I'm sober.

Nice

Awesome time today, dudes. Absolute blast. Need to work out some kinks in my system (only 63% efficiency, dammit), but there's plenty of time for that. All the beer that I sampled today was excellent, everybody was very cool. We'll definately have to do this again in a few months (well, maybe February would be a bad idea...)

Thanks again for your excellent hospitality, Glib. Pizza was awesome and your kidlings are a blast.

Well that sure was a fun drive home!

hehe, great day fellas. My beer has not taken off yet, but I have it at 64 deg so perhaps that's why. Thanks SOO much to everybody that let me bum their AG equipment. It was great to overshoot my gravity by 2 points. Maybe that will help balance the *cough* accidental addition of hops. A quick plug into Beersmith shows 133 IBU for this one! Sveeet.

Hippie, are you still alive man? Last we saw ya you were having some trouble with those stairs ;-).

Dean, how are my 400 pictures treating you?

I'm glad I took today off from work. Got to finish cleaning up the equipment and straighten out the basement. My pale ale is fermenting like a bastid even though I came up a lttle short of 5 gals after my boil. Iiii'm saving my hydrometer for my next batch. I really wanted to concentrate on the how, I'll work on the whys and wherefores as I go along.

Chill, you sure you pitched yeast and not the contents of that piss jug into out batches? Didn't somebody say that it looked a little bit lower than before?

Same as you, no activity yet, but it's a little on the cool side (64 as well). Guess the talk of explosive fermentation and blow-off tubes and all that was a little premature. I'm disappointed in my efficiency, only 63% or so (maybe a little more, hard to say whether I have 5.5, 5.6, or 5.7 gallons). I'm sure I would have been higher had I sparged a bit more, but then I would have had to do a 90 minute boil.

In any case, a GREAT time.

Kai, what's the matter with you, taking care of a sick wife...

Now that you mention it, the yeast jar did seem a little warm...

Looks like y'all had a killer time, glad to hear it. How did your new keggle perform?

The keggle was great, except I need to figure out a better system for straining hop pellets. The SS braid I was using was clogging up too easily. Not sure if using a greater length would help, or if I need to build a manifold (I have most of the parts to do so here). We ended up draining it about halfway out, then lifting it and pouring the last of it into the fermenter. Live, learn, and figure out a better solution!

Or, I suppose a big ol' hop bag might be in my future, at least for next time (which should be soon).

So, much, much thanks again!
