heh no probs... Suggestions would be to make a check list of items you will need... and check it. I can't tell you how many times I have forgot stuff. Sure there are other people there you can borrow stuff from...but it's a bit of a pain. I would also suggest not pitching your yeast on location. I have found it best to wait until I get home, check the temp of the wort. If it's too cold I pop it in the cooler...then pitch my yeast at a proper temp. If you pitch it on location the temps can go crazy depending how long you hang out there/how long you have to drive home...

Another great brew day at CnC! Although I'm a bit sunburned and look like a raccoon thanks to my sunglasses!

Yeah me too. I totally didn't realize it there. It wasn't til I got home and saw my face and neck.

You guys had it good. It was at least drizzly most of the day in Grand Rapids. Still had a good time but having the sun out and no rain would have made it easier to get a little distance between myself and the band that was playing inside the pavilion...

Unfortunately, due to my Honeydew list, I didn't make it up until things were winding down, but I'm definitely shooting for the Teach a Friend to Brew Day. Also, I got to try Revvy's Vienna Lager! Definitely looked like it was a great day.
