We can brew in my garage. I'm centrally located to everyone anyway. I've got the 12 gallon MLT so that's not a problem. We can do a staggered mash/boil so that the second batch is mashing while the first is boiling. That's why I was thinking of having the second burner. Partigyle? It would work but not necessarily a good example of what a new AG brewer would try pulling off. Malty and dark, um, maybe an Irish red, 80 shilling, ESB, or barley wine. See, I wouldn't mind doing a single 8 gallon barley wine and split it 2 gallons each, but it's an A-typical process and takes 12 months of aging. Also not a beginner's bag.

Yeah the partigyle and bigger beers are probably bad for this occasion. I've got 30+ pounds Maris Otter and I'm not sure what hops I have but I should have like 4-6 ounces. Do you still have that Vienna? An ESB could be a nice option...

I've got plenty of Vienna left. Only used 15lbs on a Vienna Lager on Saturday. It's also lager season so I'd be open to doing a pils or american premium lager, Sam BL clone, whatever. I guess let's see what styles the other guys like and we'll compromise. I don't necessarily need a share if it's something I don't like.

I can't lager but if that's what people want, I'll just go along with the grain bill. I can't imagine a solid grain bill tasting bad with any yeast...

Brewout at full boil



The heat/stress failure point was discovered early in the brewday. The ladder cannot support and heat 2 keggles.


Music editor: add Transformers Music.

It's On!

Must be some taiwanese aluminum in that damn ladder that I garbage picked. What do you mean it can't hold up to 130,000 btu's of direct fire AND hold up two kegs full of water. That's BS.

Bobby. I didn't want to mention that the aluminum offgassed a GBH like substance and most of us went into a coma for most of the afternoon.

I knew that. That's when I went around looting everyone's brewing supplies. However, you'll note that I wasn't able to steal Jody's incredible high temp keggle insulation jackets. He got them from work for free.... that'd be $250 each keg for mere mortals like us.

Someone was just making fun of me at our group brew day this past Saturday for using cat litter buckets for my sanitizer. Cheers!
