I didn't get there until 11am. Our group was on the left side of the brew brothers entrance.

I brought about 25lbs of BBQ pulled pork. Did you get to try any? We also brought a bunch of tamales.

I was wearing a camo boony hat. You might remember me by the car I rolled up in. It's a yellow cobra.

I was going to go but I had Timbers tickets. Looks like I should have tried to do both!

Those tamales were delicious! It was an amazing day!

Reviving this thread as I see this year's Big Brew is coming up and I am thinking about attending. It looks like an absolute blast, but I have one question... how did you use your wort chiller? Did they provide water?

they provide hoses and water and such, i think i lent out my chiller twice though. People are more then happy to let you borrow things while you're out there. i think the last time a brew day like this happend (not big brew, but oktobrewfest there) i lent out my refract, a thermometer, some gloves lol. i'm pretty sure we all know we're going to forget something. like, i forgot a lighter for my burners!

haha of course!

That sounds awesome though. Brewers helping brewers. I am hoping the weather holds up and I can make it. Sounds like a great time.

I was just on the Brew Brothers site and saw the announcement for this and my first questions were about water and using an immersion chiller. I came to HBT and found someone had just posted about it. Great timing and thanks for the info. Not sure about brewing in a group, but it looks like everyone has fun.

It's an absolute blast! Think simple IMO. Try to do too much for your fist group brew and you might have real issues. I set my new single tier system on fire last year. Oops all turned out well. And remember to bring beer. It's like the biggest homebrew share you've ever been to!
