Lschiavo, Ron called and woke me up this morning. He said that your dad told him that you're out of beer! Not true, is it?
Sounds like a plan. I just emailed you a scaled version of the original. Look it over and make any adjustments you feel necessary.

Are you sure you were awake? That sounds like a nightmare to me! I still have 20+ gallons.

What should I bring? I have Ed's Pale and the DFH60 IPA. The IPA is a little different...I ran out of Amarillo and had to use mostly Simcoe for dry hop so it will be a little different than yours.

Oh, you know me! Bring the IPA! I have an IPA and an APA available. I might bring the APA, since it's Bob's favorite.

I'll check over the recipe. I looked at my version (two 7.5 gallon recipes) and it looks like we need 6 ounces of cascade and 6 ounces of centennial, and 3 ounces of magnum.

Xiang, can you bring the cascade and centennial hops? I'm low on centennial, but I have plenty of magnum. I do have some cascades, if you don't have any.

Well, I just took a whiff of my yeast starter, from a washed yeast.

It was my last saved bit of Denny's favorite. It's sour and not good smelling.

Does anybody mind using dry yeast? Or anybody have a yeast for themselves? I have a couple of packages of S05, and a couple of S04, and several of Nottingham. No liquid yeast anymore, except for pacman that would need a starter.

Any ideas?

What kind of outlet do you have on your kettle? I'm set up with 1/2-in hose barbs to connect the pump. If you have something different we may have to adapt.
I have an 1/2-in hose barb on the ball valve.

Dry yeast is fine. I have one pack of s-05, several of s-04's and Nottingham.

ok, bring whatever yeast you want to use for your 5 gallons. I have the rest here at the cottage in the fridge.

What about hops? I can buy some tomorrow (centennial) if we need them.

We're in Escanaba. Set up the tents and had dinner at H&H Brewpub. Everyone was tired so we went back to campground right after eating.

H&H was pretty nice and the beer I had was good. Now the nice, peaceful campground features a guy with a mullet, and another camp blaring classic rock. At least it's not country, I guess. Oh, and the skeeters have found their dinner too!

Can't wait for the party! I wish I would have chevked the forums last night gefore bed, I could have brought all kinds of hops!

We've got the hops under control. Some campground you're at! At least it's not country music. I think all of the radio stations (except for two) are bad country music.

We'll have my favorite music tomorrow- lschiavo is bringing speakers for IPODs. I plan on my absolute favorite brewing music- 90s grunge.

We made sure the pontoon boat has plenty of gas, and we've got plenty of room.

I don't know what you guys are planning exactly- but Bob pulled out the Ottawa map, and I can show you a couple of waterfalls that would be on your way to Houghton. Of course, that's for daylight hours. Bond Falls is on the way, and it's really a nice waterfall that the kids should love.

We have firewood ready for a fire tomorrow night- let's hope it doesn't rain again!
