Indeed. I would love to do a full boil AG batch. Only PMing at the moment. I could max out my 5 gal MLT!

I was going to try a lager, but the chilling and transporting process would be difficult, so I'll stick to a cali ale.

Should be a a good gathering fellas!

So does this look like a "go"? If so, I'll go ahead and order stuff for an AG Cali Ale.

EDIT: This is my prelim recipe:

AG Cali Common

10 lbs. American 2-row
1 lbs. American Caramel 20°L
.5 lbs. American Victory

Medium body Single Infusion around 153degF for 60 min
Batch Sparge!
maybe 70% eff. if I'm lucky

1 oz. Willamette (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.5 oz. Willamette (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 30 min.
.5 oz. Cascade (Pellets, 5.50 %AA) boiled 15 min.
.5 oz. Willamette (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 10 min.
.5 oz. Cascade (Pellets, 5.50 %AA) flame out


Should be around 1.045-1.055

Yeast is WY2112 Cali Common

Ferment around 60degF

Or something like that...

I'm hitting the HBS either this weekend or next, if anyone needs me to pick up supplies. PM me if so.

yeah GREEN, GREEN, GREEN on that.

Anyone interested in attending PM me to confirm your spot, and I will get you directions, and a map.

I will also have a makeshift lauter tun which can be used in conjunction with a spare mash tun (which is not equipped with a means to lauter).

I've lost track of hardware needs, that is if my 2 burners will be needed (I just remembered I have a 3rd, but it is 2 side by side burners in a rectangular frame; I've never used it, and don't know it's output). I also have a full tank, and if I can find it in storage, a splitter to feed 2 burners off the same tank.
Just PM me or post here as we know more.

For the food, we could always use a spare burner as a friolator and do buffalo wings/tenders, mozz sticks, jalapeno poppers, fries & O rings (to name a few). If somebody has a Sam's/Costco/BJ's card those are fairly cheap...

The splitter would be great, as would another propane tank. I ordered my Bayou Classic Banjo Cooker last night (happy birthday to me!), so I'll definately want to take that out for a ride, but the less gear to squeeze into the Elm the better.

We'll need to figure out a solution for wort chilling. I have two hoses to use for those with immersion chillers, but it looks like there will be several of us potentially chillin while we are chilling!

I've thought about that... if you're getting started ahead of the rest of us, you'll be chilled before the rest of us need a hose. Seems, too, that we could put together a simple hose splitter using parts from the Depot to make two hoses into three. I'll play around with that when I'm down there next.

All kidding aside, I'd love to join you, but a 2,500 mile drive is a bit much for a brew day.

LOL my truck is a 10 year old C1500, and I only can afford to drive it on weekend nowadays.......
I'd like to be there too, but my commute would be a bit long as well........do me a favor, though, and hoist a few for me that day-it'll be my birthday

Will do. There will be enough room in the Elm for homebrew, even if it means Chillhaze is strapped to the roof rack!
