Nasty blizzard going on today. If I had more parts I could work on The Bellybuster. Good day to update the web page

rainy brewing

Can't let a little rain stop me. I was worried about using my pump in the rain but it worked ok. I am also worried about maintaining sanitation when I cool.
Not sure when i would get a chance to brew if I didn't do it today. The worst part about this rain is that it's melting what little snow we have in the mountains this year so Skiing might be ruined for awhile

HSA alert!!! Run for the hills!!!

Note, you will not find anyone that disbelieves the HSA for homebrewers BS any more than myself.

Note^2, this means I'm kidding... Great idea using a big umbrella.

Hophead, I saw that too. But I believe that is indeed a clear hose coming out of that tun.

What makes it any more nasty than the other 364 days each year you spend in that frozen, hop-sterile tundra you call home, BBB?

I have been running out of my mash/tun into the kettle without a hose for nearly a year and have not found this HSA people keep talking about. I do have brews that have been around for 6 months or more.

Just one more data point.

I was waiting for a hops comment!

Like, Good day to go out and plant some hops eh?

It's got to be really really cold up there today. It was 16 on the way to work this morning here. And that's not Celsius.

Jake- no problems at all. I make 13 gallon batches lately. I've gotten as much as 35 lbs of grain in it with a normal mash ratio with no problems. I probably could get a few more pounds than that if I tried.

So Jim, is that a free pour out of that cooler, or is that a clear hose?

70 qt. It was a steal at a closeout store called 'Big Lots'. I think it was like $20 a couple years ago. I don't miss my 10 gallon round cooler!
