In addition, we now bring order to your Internets with soundandfurybrew.com! It's official, that is now a thing and it will ever simplify... your rss feed. Potentially. Either way its good to have and a symbolic step of intent going forward for the new year.
Speaking of intent, onward marches the all-grain system! As previously noted all vessels are complete and the only missing links are a wort chiller (I'm thinking a Therminator is my best bet at this point) and one or two barbs and connectors. Once they are in place and I've insulated my Mash Tun (latest worst case scenario* testing was brutal on the keggle setup - ~30*F temperature drop over 1 hour) we'll be ready to rock! I'm going to be ordering these later in the week so look out for the first batch, with various January commitments and such it will be coming sometime in Feb! I have a feeling that first off the line will be a split 10 gal version of the Pistachio Porter.

*Tested strike water @ 172*F in uninsulated Mash Tun with no lid in <40*F ambient temperature
So excited for the all-grain set up! Should be many days of bundling up out in the garage over bubbling kettles with good conversation carrying the whole procedure along! Looking forward to it! By the way, the description of Winter ale's flavors is positively mouth watering!ReplyDelete
