Monday, cut hole in top of keg
Wednesday, Burner arrived
Today, got propane tank and moved operations to the garage!

Today I am brewing up the last of my extract before I go AG I just wanted to try out the new gear. The keggle doesn't have a spigot yet, still gotta build the mash tun. Today's brew is just a celebration of moving out of wifey's kitchen.

I 'm loving this! So that's what a real boil looks like! I've never had to turn down the gas before! ......And hey! why does it not mention anywhere on this site how hard it is to actually see inside the keggle? Huh? I need to get a flashlight.

Oooh this feels so much more manly than that cissy kitchen brewing! I think I've grown a third testicle in just the last half hour. It's gonna look like a bunch plums down there by the time this brew is over.

Effing A! Congrats on the move!! Brewing in the garage is SO much better than the kitchen. SWMBO is off my ass about the smell, doesnt matter if you spill anything, and the dreaded boil over isn't as big of a deal. Plus what better way to spend a few hours in the garage than brewing/drinking HB. Cheers my friend

Oh yeah! I have a drain in the centre of the floor here. I can lift out any bags and just plonk them down on the drain to dry some till I wash them later. no need to do all that kitchen-drip-catching crap. And If I boil over? Meh, so what?

Man, I'm soooo stoked to start AG now!

Good job. Now that you're going AG, I certainly have no excuse.

BTW, you're not supposed to post actual brewing info. It confuses us.
