I would love to come down for a brewing weekend and swap some beers sometime. Of course, the invitation is always open for you to scope out my setup and drink my beer too.

Maybe we could set something up for later spring or summer time. I could probably find a friend from the brew club to join me and split gas. Let me know what works for you.

Here's to many great batches of beer on your new system!

Thanks!

I'm retired, but working part-time. (Long story). Anyway, I can brew just about anytime, so if you want to come down, I can arrange that day/time to show you the system and brew on it. I always have at least a couple of beers on tap, and my daughter wanted me to start a batch of hard lemonade for her, so there will be other things to drink as well. Just let me know!

Speaking of pickled stuff, I'm making 2 dozen pickled eggs after I'm done brewing this evening. Mmmmmm mmmmmm....!

Aside from a stuck sparge, good! Not really a stuck sparge, just a very very sllllooooowwww sparge. I believe I know why. When I ramped up to mash out temp, I turned up the speed of the pump on for the HERMS. I think that's when it happened, and then just got worse during the sparge. It started off draining ok, but near the end it was trickling slower and slower. I have to think about what to do- a slower rise to mash out? Rice hulls? I'm not sure what I'll do next time.

The 10 gallons chilled quickly. I recirculated for about 10 minutes, then passed through the CFC to the fermenter on the last pass at full speed. Pitching temp was 66.7 degrees and I used so4 for one fermenter and s05 for the other.

I did not see your brewcast, but out of curiosity, what kind of camera do you use?
