Title: Another busy day at Wooden Shoe Brew Works.....
Post by: oscarvan on June 02, 2011, 01:48:57 AM
Kegged 2x5 gallons of Belgian Strong Ale, and 2x5 gallons of IPA this morning. Shuffled all the keggies, cleaned the buckets, then proceeded to brew 10 gallons of Belgian Ale (not so strong...lol) and 10 gallons of my American Brown Ale, which is currently coming down through 140º. All cleaned up except for the BK. 8 am 'till 11 pm......a long day.

Did figure out a new trick. It's 90º in the brewery.....hardly a good temp for pitching yeast. So, cool the buckets as best I can, then put them, and the yeast in a separate container as I am re-pitching from this mornings buckets, in the fermenteezers at 62º with the lids on loose. After about an hour everything is at the right, and the same, temp. Pitch, and close the lids, air locks in and were off......

Been "maintaining" since earlier this afternoon. Just not enough to lose concentration.

Are you sure you don't have a liver the size of Rhode Island?   :o Some of the local breweries here have smaller brew days than this...

I think he shares with his creatively anachronistic friends.   ;)

Yes, anachronistic friends as well as local colleagues/fellow brewers. You know they're here to stay when they hang their own mug on a hook above the keggerator.  ;D Fortunately they frequently buy the food, so it all works out.

Put a little dream gravy on that and I'm in heaven. I love liver and onions.

oscar - that is one hell of a feat. 

I did a 2.5er one day - a patigyle barleywine/english pale and an old ale batch following and that was enough for me to question my sanity.

good job, sir!
