One or two folks may have strubbled across the ever-so-informative "Brewfest so big you can see it from space" tomes. This brew-day is a continuation of those debacles. I wanted to change the title of the thread to be a little more informative and give it a little extra pizzazz... you know.. drum up some good publicity.

We have six brewers who are going to attempt a traditional lambic by using a turbid mash schedule (specifically the one described in Wild Brews) which we will then age in the barrel currently keeping our Russian River Consecretion clone nice and comfy.

Out of the six brewers, five are HBT members:

me
Paulthenurse (aka Nepoleon the Oompa Loompa)
Babalu
Drinkswellwithothers
homebeerbrewer

This event is on the calendar, in pen, for Saturday June 12th.

Rumor has it we are starting at some sort of unGodly hour of 5:00 AM or something and it should be a pretty interesting day.

A few things folks might want to take note of:

1) live webcast... we GOTTA. The last one was a blast and this is gonna be too good not to share.
2) Likely to relive the whole "drunken power tool usage" events of the last webcast with hilarity to surely ensue
3) There's been talk of stripping Paul down to his thong, greasing him up with Crisco and offering a brand new 14 gallon Blingman conical for the first person who can wrestle him to the ground. The assumption is the conical will go un-claimed due to lack of anyone trying.
4) there should be a fair amount of meat thrown on the grill.
5) we are expecting at least some turn out from our HBC... SSBC... (all six of us are members) representin'!!! so my guess is there will be some good beer on hand.

Any local HBT'rs who have any interest in swinging through, lemme know and I'll give you directions. Anyone else... stay tuned for the webcast details..

seriously... how often can you watch a turbid mash AND a greased up chubby guy? NOT often.

From someone who has done this exact thing (minus webcam and greased chubby guy) - good freaking luck.

Very anxious to see how yours turns out. If it wasn't $80 each way, I'd certainly think about coming up for such an event.

So I take it you're day didn't go well??

What were some of the problems you had?

We had a couple very minor things we were going to do to try to taek out some headaches... We're having the raw wheat crushed at North Country Malt where we're getting the grains from. No sense in fighting our mills for three hours.

And we're planning on using a ton of rice hulls to try to prevent REALLY stuck mashes.

I think we're going to use a "community" pot for any wort drawn off during the process with one guy watching that pot and maintaining it's temp. We have a couple good size rigs and between my HLT and BK, I'll have 90 gallons of boiling water that we can run off into other rigs/pots.

I'm hoping we'll make it through the day in one piece.

We should get a MOD to combine threads

Yeah, we'll need a watch this pot guy.

Other thought is I can bring the electric and that can hold all the wort we're pulling and holding at 190 in the community pot.

I need to make up a cord to go from your dryer to my rig though.

I think we'll have more than enough people there that we can designate a "watch this pot guy'.

I'd recommend a designated (sober) person with multiple alarm clocks, a clip board, and full mash schedule for each mash tun in use.

Timing this one was a nightmare.

It's a harder job than you would think!

I'm tempted to road trip down again. Have to see how many projects I've got going, though.
