The last time we brewed was for the NHC barrel brew day at the store. Ran PBW for about 3 hours today through both pumps, plate chiller, BK, et al. Didn't do a through job cleaning that day, can't imagine why.... Some really nasty $hit came out of that plate chiller! Either myself or my wife will be up at some point for some ingredients. I can do all but the Hopslam and I believe the Eisbock. Have to double check the ingredients for the eisbock, but definitly need yeast for that anyway.

Derek, have you used any of the ECY you picked up a few months ago at the Philly Homebrew Club meeting?

Brewing a 1/2 bbl Rye Saison today, splitting it 3 ways between 3711, 565, and ECY08. If it turns out decent I'll enter it in the Battle of the Homebrew shops competition, I wouldnt mind that barrel although I may stop by Keystone and grab one of those soon anyway.

Yeah, I've used the saison strain (was great) and the scottish on a strong scotch so far. Re using the scottish today or tomorrow on this barleywine. Re using a roaslere cake on the Flemish red today, in order to blend it later on this year with a batch i made in the summer. Heating up strike water on that flemish red now...

You guys with time to brew are jerks! Lol. Just a heads up, I'm also a freelance graphic designer so if anybody local is looking for label designs or club graphics I can help out. My freelancing is mostly the reason I don't have time to brew...

I only brewed one beer today, the 10 gal of Flemish Red. Should be tasty! Knocking out a brew tomorrow morning, then getting a little cycling in. I'm also in the process of finishing up a coffee table I've been working on for the last few weeks. That's mainly the reason I only got one brew in today. Just put the first coat of finish on it, hopefully will have this puppy in the house by next weekend. We'll see.

Finishing up the cleaning on an American Barleywine. BK is on clean water rinse recirculation, and I'm enjoying a beer. What a nice weekend. Sadly I don't think I'll be brewing again until late feb/early march.

I'm always up for brew partners. Unfortunatly, it's a bit of a PITA to move my rig around.

What are you making it out of? Plans? I will be receiving a MIG welder soon (my father wanted to upgrade his, so I'm buying his old one off of him). Will be nice to be able to do what I want in wood and metal soon! Though that will mean upgrading the service to the garage....
