Holy Mother of Gawd my man! Well if you only get a few days a year to brew... Brew big!!
Very nice system.
Are the kettles tri clad bottoms?

So for the guys out there thinking..Hmm must be nice. How much did you spend on the batch of beer, do you think? I'm just going to guess $250+ after yeast and dry hops...

Cheers
Jay

$.63/lb for grain x 90 lbs=$57.37
Hops average $11-12/lb x 26 oz=$19.50
4 of the 8 fermentors received recycled yeast=$0
2 received dry yeast(2.99 ea.)=$6
2 received liquid yeast(7.99 ea)=$16
Propane- one twenty lb cylinder=$9.95
Total batch cost...=$108.82

Not including water, sanitizer, etc.

As far as tri-clad bottoms go, I don't really know. I don't think so, but I don't know as they were scrapyard finds. No scorched wort, though, so I'm happy with them.

That's pretty rad. I was going to jealously criticize as to why you needed that much beer but you quickly refuted that. No one can hate on a guy that gives carboy's of beer away. Super nice dude. Kudos.

If you give away the beer before its fermented I imagine you get around the max volume of beer legality, right? BTW, thats a ridiculus setup.
