Default Just some large batch porn pics

The WHALES brew club brewed their second RIS batch this Saturday. This is just some Monday morning brew porn to smile about.

I'll take "Reasons to join a homebrew club that has their act together for $1200 Alex".


One of two 55 gallon HLT/BKs heating strike water.


100 GALLON MASH


For Scale:

I bet this gives the words Brew Day a whole new meaning.

The day before it's a couple hours of setup and milling (275 lbs of malt).

The brew day starts early lighting the burners on the strike water at about 7:30am.

If I recall, dough in at 9am (they were waiting for me to show up with the HERMS coil)

Sparge started at 10:30am after a short run up to 160F using the HERMS.

The boil is staggered so that the chilling can be staggered. I think BK#1 started boiling at about noon.

I don't know, no one took accurate notes on this batch that I know of but everything was in the fermenters, cleaned up, and packed in vehicles before 5pm.

It's getting shorter every time we use the system though. Since this was 70 gallons of 1.108 RIS and 20 gallons of 1.055 tailings (partigyle) we had more volume than usual. When we brew a more conservative batch, I'm pretty sure we could do it in less than 7 hours.

When you said 6 months in the bourbon barrel I was shocked! Where did you get a 55 gallon bourbon barrel? Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much are the dues you pay for this club? Looks like you have a good thing going, I might have to look into one.
