We have three now50 gallons lagering in corny kegs as I type this.I really need another chest freezer and more kegs so I can do this...That sounds ridiculously awesome.
I'm picking up a new freezer tomorrow for this exact purpose.
You won't regret it!

I can't remember the last time I lagered in anything else. Works great.
not to take this thread too far off track, but I did scott's dryhop experiment with bud light and am presenting it at my next brew club meeting - its quite shaming that I have 10 quarts of bud light in my beer fridge right now, but at least I have labels with the dryhops on them!
Very nice. Thanks for the links. http://www.bertusbrewery.com also has a Stone Ruination IPA 10 year Anniversary clone that looks awesome as well..... http://bertusbrewery.com/2012/08/ipa-clone-series-stone-runination-10th.html
yeah - I've been following Scott's blog for some time now - he seems to have a great handle on cloning IPA recipes. I've got a slightly modified version of his Blind Pig recipe in the fermentor and so far so good.
the FW UJ and Double Jack recipes look solid.
Just buy new fermentors. It's not worth the risk of all the work of a brewday not to mention cost of ingredients.
I have no idea what they are doing. But when I talked to vinny several years ago he acted like the recipe posted online and made popular by the b3 clone wasn't what they were using "now". Heck, my understanding is that RR is using hop extracts for Pliny for bittering additions.Hop extract is used to get more wort out of the kettle. The recipe he handed out at the Oakland NHC was for homebrewers, and uses 45 and 30 additions. He said on the BN a couple years back that he uses Amarillo in Pliny now.
Temp of sample?
I can report that the Kansas City Bier Meisters did a great, great job of organizing a successful judging weekend in KC. I know they are exhausted now but I hope they consider hosting a regional in another year or two. Some solid and some excellent beers from around the country, and judging done by around 5pm yesterday. Sufficient lighting and not overcrowded. The food was great and plentiful, thanks. Quite a few judges made really long drives to help out. Janis even flew out to help! Yeah I did some b****ing about a few long flights, but that is practically my calling card.
