Mashing Brew #2, Took time to keg my Liberty ale and soak the BB in PBW:


Took a few trips to the tap during the whole process (9 a.m. to 5p.m):


Great day. No major problems. Hit my gravity readings and ran out of propane at 55 minutes on beer#2. So.....yeah.

With the shortage of hops and the price of grain rising, I've taken Orfy's cue and started to really enjoy the simple clean beers. How can you go wrong with MO and EKG?

Yep. A spare propane tank is chore number one for Monday morning...fill the empty, get a spare.
