Ya but when he's found bound and gagged in the corner it might raise a few eyebrows. Of course, we are talking about Norton where jaywalking is considered a serious crime. Maybe the cops there won't notice.


Na. That's no good. I wouldn't want to deprive myself of the pleasure of watching just to avoid a long stretch in prison. Back to plan 1.

I'm guessing that wouldn't be the first time someone's found Yeager tied up in the corner with a ball-gag in his mouth. Pretty commonplace, if the rumors are to be believed.

At the rate we're going we'll need to move this to the Boneyard. Let's just pretend that we know nothing about Chris and his romper room peccadilloes and go back to talking about the Utopia.

Ned (our guy who makes the maple syrup) has promised that he'll have the desired quantity ready for us come brew day. You have to taste this guys syrup. It's freakin' awesome. He makes it here locally and it's as good as anything you get out in the boonies. Not a commercial operation, just a dude with a bunch of sugar maples on his property and an understanding wife.

What, is he going to be tapping his trees in January? Ain't no maple sugaring happening in the dead of winter. Or, wait, you not going to be adding it until March/April?

EDIT: A couple years ago, Glibbidy had promised to hook me up with some smoked maple syrup. Made me feel a failure as a Vermonter that I had no idea you could smoke it (I'm sure a few people have tried). I know you're trying to keep things about the same as batch 1, but I've long been intrigued by the concept of this stuff and wanting to try it in a beer.

I'm sure he'll be dipping into the 2010 batch, unless the whole global warming thing kicks into high gear in the next month.

Interesting about the smoked syrup. You would think that the open topped evaporating trays would give the smoke plenty of opportunity to mix into the concentrating sap. But what do I know, I just put it on my pancakes. And occasionally in a brew. And every once in a while on a pair of boobies. I think a smoked syrup would take away from that experience. But that's just me, YMMV.

OK, so I went over Yeager's today and slapped him around a bit just to get his head on straight. We're doing the Mega Mash. All 113 pounds of grain in a single monolithic mash tun. This is gonna be so f'ing cool.

BTW, thanks Chris, for geeking out SWMBO's Christmas present. Unlike like me, you aren't half the jerk we make you out to be.

Oh my, back to the Boneyard.

Just wanted to flip you some sh## and let you know how much I enjoyed following along with U1 and U2.

Please keep the abuse prominent in the thread as it helps me pretend I have friends, too. The information is sorta useful, too. Mostly the abuse though.

Be good. If you can't be good, be discrete.

I know you've talked about this thing before but have you tested it out at all yet? Just seems like a lot of grain to have to deal with if you get a stuck mash. I remember you guys having a problem last year or the year before, hell it could have been both years, with trying to drain the mash tun and recirculate.

Yeah, no s#!%. Nobody's gonna be sticking an arm into 113lbs of mash, I hope.
