I didn't realize that the connections had gotten loosened up a bit; there was a bit of a leak where the hose connects to the burner. When I turned the flame up, the gas leaking out caught on fire, which was a little bit freaky. No injuries, though - although it scared the crap out of me.

It was also only a four-and-a-half hour process, start to finish, and that was even having to wait a bit longer than I should have for my sparge water. Fastest AND most efficient; I'm liking these smaller beers...

Default Yet another Pale Ale

I'm making another pale ale tonight. Tweaking the recipe and adding some more hops.

I'm about halfway throught the boil right now, and I'm about to start sanitizing everything. I wasn't planning on brewing today, but I needed something to help me get over the loss to Chicago today . . .
