This is a busy brew weekend for me. I brewed a Fat Tire clone last night...this morning it's bubbling away and sitting in it's water bath already. Today I'm gonna start brewing a batch of Baja Red chili, rack my hefe to secondary, and tear my hair out over some football. Tomorrow it's time to bottle my Hobgoblin clone.

Well, early football game today, so I'm forced to start drinking early too. What's everyone else brewing today?

No brewing today, but I'm off to Corvallis to get the ingredients for Poor Richard's Ale. Yesterday was the 12th anniversary of Golden Valley Brewing and I think I had too much cake. (all that unfermented sugar is bad for you).

Not brewing today but I am upgrading my brewery. I'm adding another 15gal brew pot to my setup (ss Keg) so I can boil in parallel. Some of my 10gal recipes require up to 22 gallons of water which makes my current brewpot too small.
(I know..terrible dillema..)

I have to boil down nearly 2 hours before I reach the right volumes for hopping. Also, it doesn't leave much room for hot breaks either. I have to stand there for 2 hours with my hand on the propane valve.

I'm gonna need another hop stopper...come on Christmas.

I built another burner out of black pipe ,mortar and a gas valve. Pretty cheap gizmo. Built a stand out of threaded pipe to go over it. I'll post it if it works out alright.

I just got home from being gone to 2 weeks so I want to brew.

Unfortunately, I have to rack to secondaries and I have to bottle something, but the wife wants me to tile the bathroom floor.

Guess which one I'm doing? (HINT: It involves knee pads and thinset! )

Since we have no kids at home it really doesn't matter when I brew/clean/rack/bottle, etc.

I feel like such a grasshopper...I boiled almost 4 gallons once.

Leaving now to go remind each kid about how much I love them, and how important college is, and where the LHBS is.
