Outside brew day. Posting pics because i thought this was kind of fun. Cross between bag in pot, turkey fryer, and tiered system.

Feel free to critisize.

Yeast starter looking kind of funky. WL 029 German Ale / Kolsch

Heating strike water


While the water heats, here's the grain

Your equipment puts mine to shame! Very nice, what kind of thermometer is that? I've had a little-meaning a LOT-of trouble with them breaking in my wort, wasted two entire batches in the last three weeks. If I had only a probe it the wort, in theory that would be unbreakable-at least it would not contaminate the raw beer when it broke.

I use two 8" commercial grade thermometers, and I've not had one break in two years. They are easy to calibrate, and quite accurate over time as long as you don't drop them. $15 each at the local restaurant supply store.

Great pics! What are you using as your mash tun? Look like a cross between a cooler and a large crockpot.

That stick blender for both mixing the wort for cooling and aeration is near genius! I may have to look into one of those.

That looks to be one of the masterbuilt electric turkey fryers.
