I was looking through some older brew pictures today and found these 3 year old pictures.
I am brewing using a future stair landing for my HLT and the MT is on top of Car ramps. I see my grape trellis that everyone laughed at as being to big for one plant. I see that I haven't planted much in the redone yard or finished the stonework on all my cement/block walls. I like the fact that I took time off to keep living and brewing through this long construction project.
looks like I'm all done ready for a beer and cleanup

About 1997 or so My Buddy Scott and I decided to brew 65 gallons of beer in one day.

This was about a year before I got my 55 gallon setup I believe. We put all the equipment that we had together and it took us almost all freaking day.

Still the memories of that day are of a great achievement between two guys that just wanted to brew more beer than they ever had before...

What a backdrop for brewing in the top photos, ELK!!

Scott, all those converted kegs and garbage can fermenters boggle the mind, though I swear the bottom left pic looks like you may have found a pot to pee in!

Alrighty...

ELK got me to thinking...

Right after I moved to my new "old" house in New Hampshire my buddy Maury and I brewed a big batch of Barley Wine. HOP Skotch Barley Wine, I still have a good amount of it aging and I know that Maury does too.

Also... During Big Brew 1999 My Friend Rich and I brewed a huge batch of Barley Wine to celebrate the fact that my wife had somehow gotten herself pregnant with twins...

That was a fun brewing day. The "Holy It's Twins" Barley wine is long gone but the twins are here to stay.

I always like to brew in groups. Gather a bunch of homebrewers and everybody makes a batch. This was from a 5-batch night back in '04. I'm the one with the ponytail, now long gone.

5 batches

You might have better luck with links instead of embedded pics. Takes a long time to open already, and it will only get worse.

You can never have too many fermenters. Or too much stuff fermenting. This was after a 3-batch session when I already had a bunch of beer, mead, and cider going. It's hard to tell in this pic, but there are also buckets and carboys behind the boxes of bottled beer. You can see 4 airlocks sticking up. I believe there are 10 batches in all.

This is from Big Brew 2001 at the Georgia Mountain Brewery. That's me in the Tie-Dye, and I will let Vance tell y'all who that shady character lurking on the right side of the photo is...

No starters that day. I think we pitched all the yeast Bob had at the store though. That's our lhbs owner holding the vial of WL. After a few beers it looks like from the grin.

My first and last Big Brew to date. Always a bad weekend cause there's 10 other things going on.
