Since I've been slacking a lot lately, I decided to crank it up a notch today.

I've done a couple of doubles before, but today was the first time I decided to go for 3. A little strategic planning and 7.5 hours later, I have a batch of Centennial Blonde, Porter, and an IPA in the primary.

I also Kegged my take on the 8-8-8 RIS that has been in secondary for 16 months (brewed 7-8-10) and dryhopped my 9-9-9 american barleywine in secondary for 14 months (brewed 10-16-10). I will carbonate in the keg and then transfer to bottles.

Exhausting day, but worth it.

Wow, great job. Never done that, but lots of doubles.

Sounds like a great day of success! I would love to do a triple brewday, I currently do 10g batches, I might have to buy more fermenters

7.5 hours to do 3? that's pretty good.

i just did a parti-gyle RIS, 1.102 and 1.045 small stout. took me damn near 7 and I had help.

Well done!
Done some doubles, but I'm afraid a triple brew day would almost seem like work.

So you brewed 3 beers, kegged another and dryhopped a third? Kudos, I'm not sure I'd get through that in a 24 hour day, certainly not whilst drinking homebrew
