Well I am a machine, so I guess even though both pies were homemade you can still call them that ha ha.  I'm calling on my old skills from summers past working at the pizzeria

Can't believe no one has posted any breakfast pies yet!   Made this one this morning- sausage and bacon.   Just gotta be sure to make a good ridge around the edge of the dough so the eggs don't spill everywhere.  Then be careful putting it in the oven!   Dribbling the egg onto a 500º stone might make a bit of a smokey mess!

Pie turned out awesome!   Finally got to use my new screen and peel.   Helps to have the right tools!

Finally got a pizza stone for christmas.  Made a couple pies Christmas weekend then I quickly ordered a peel and a screen.  Unfortunately on the 4th pie, the stone split in half!   Two days later my peel and screen were delivered.   Debating on trying a pie tomorrow and just putting the two pieces of the stone together in the oven and cooking it on that.

One of my acoustics-   Guild F65CE   Plays and sounds like a dream-   maple body and neck, ebony fretboard, pearl inlays.    its pretty thin, only 2 1/2", really made to be plugged in.

I readjusted mine (well, I shoved it further up onto the barb) and it got the stretch out of it.   My runoff was a lot faster today.  I didn't think it would retain its shape by simply pushing it back together, but it did.   

I don't secondary very often, I usually use the keg as a secondary.   I do rack to a carboy to secondary for higher gravity beers that I'm going to age for awhile and beers that I dry hop

1.142?  Oh snap!  What did you pitch for yeast into that bad boy?   I'm thinking about doing a strong scotch ale this fall...

I'd like to pass along my jealousy-  Sam Adams was the only Oktoberfest that o
could find this year.  (the beer selection around here sucks!).   Last year I found beck's Oktoberfest (which I enjoyed).   Luckily my own turned out awesome.  Too bad I only made 5 gallons

One of the advantages of the Coleman Extreme (70 qt., anyway) is that it has a trough/groove slightly lower than the bottom level that allows maximum drainage.  The 70 qt. is also large enough to do reasonably big 10 gallon batches.
+1 to the 70qt coleman!   gotta love the channel for the drain.   Plus it can do 10 gallon batches.   When I went all grain, I bought a small cooler (5 gallon I think?) did 3 or 4 batches then bought the 70 qt so I could do 10 gallons.   Should have done it in the first place....

Palmer talks about manifold configurations in his book as it relates to the flow through the grain bed.

The manifold configuration is only really important for fly sparging.  Assuming the OP is following Denny's Cheap'n'easy methods, he would be batch sparging and 6 to 8 inches of braid is perfectly fine.
yeah I'm batch sparging.   I believe I saw a post somewhere by Denny saying that'd he experimented with longer braids and didn't notice a difference.
