Picked up some more Teflon tape so I could put ball valves on my new kettle and cooler MLT. Leak tested both. Marked my mash paddle with volumes up to 7 gallons for my new kettle. Then tried putting my new kettle over two burners on my crappy electric stove to see how much I could boil. While doing that, calibrated my thermometers. Then got unbelievably irate when my kettle not only couldn't boil enough for a full boil, it couldn't get as strong of a boil at under 5 gallons as I could with one burner and my old kettle. So my new kettle won't be getting any use for a long time unless I either break fire code and violate my lease (risking fines and/or eviction) and use propane on my balcony, or deal with hauling 5+ gallons of near boiling wort up 14 floors, and (again in violation of lease/fire code) store propane inside my apartment. So looks like I'm still stuck doing small boils in my old 5 gallon kettle. Gah. I was in a great mood until my electric stove proved just how worthless it is.

Cleaned out an old keg I got from a buddy, checked sales, tried to clean root beer residue out of the cobra tap that was inside. May just pitch the line and get a new one.

Picked up a second keg after just getting my first one yesterday. Now I need to brew something soon so I can fill it. In the meantime I will be polishing off the bottles I have to make room for keg 2 in the beer fridge.

Used the wrong bag of DME to make a starter yesterday. Had to go get some more plain light DME today. They got the wrong kind shipped to them. Had to settle for amber. Now I gotta mixe amber & extra light with the .5lb of plain light I have left for tomorrow's brew.
And on top of that,the battery in my car went south in the lhbs's parking lot. The owner was good enough to give me a jump when he had time. Thinkin of giving him a couple of my beers next week in graditude.

Did surgery to my turkey fryer so it safely (I hope) holds a keggle. Blichmann burner on the wish list lol... Also finished cleaning up the keggle for bare minimum use tomorrow. Need to make gallon markers and boil water for an hour to get a boil rate.
