Ha... I had a funny thought reading that. Is that a mash tun posing as a shop vac or a shop vac posing as a mash tun?

Nothing so far, too busy smoking grain while the weather is still nice.
4 lbs smoked with pear wood. Delicatesweet smoke.
4 lbs on the smoker with Beechwood. I want that complete Bamberg flavor experience for my next Rauchbier. Will do 4 more lbs so that I have enough.
Maybe an IPA later in the week.
I have found that it is not so much the elevation but the rate of ascent.
Actually I enjoy fishing, walking (it would be called hiking where majorvices lives but we just call it walking here ),Ha I bet you're right. We're at about 2,200 ft. and rolling hills, not mountains... That's why we call it walking I guess..
LOL! I think you would find the terrain behind my house surprisingly challenging even though it barely tops out at 2000 ft. Or maybe not.
How about a nice American Wheat for the masses? It's easy to make and I'll bet it goes first.That's what I did for our Daughter's rehearsal BBQ this year & it went over well. Had a little Mead on the side for some hardcores as well...
Here are some pics from the Cascade Brewers Society TAF 2009 event, held at my house.
Coolers on parade...as you can see, there are a lot of Cheap'n'Easy brewers in the club
How bout we move on and make some new history on THIS killer forum?
So do I detect a bunch of NB outcasts here?
Can I ask what happened?
FWIW, I'm part of the McNugget revolution.
Finally, there is an AHA forum I know how to use. I never could figure out or really take the time and patience to participate in the old email message board.
Anyway, a bit about me. I am Steve and I live in South Louisiana right outside Baton Rouge toward New Orleans. My regular job is as a Paramedic with the City of Baton Rouge. I have been a medic for right at 30 years. I am married with 3 kids still at home.
Brewing wise I brew all grain and started out brewing that way. I bought a keggerator from a dude on Craigslist and he threw in all of his beer equipment hence how I got into brewing beer all grain. I had brewed one extract batch with a buddy prior. I have worked my way from the coolers to a commercial sculpture system.
I actually started out as a winemaker and still make wine. I am a moderator for a large winemaking forum and an Administrator for another. I am a member of a few beer forums but this is the forum I have been waiting for. I don't know how many times I wrote AHA requesting it. If the info here is as good as the email list, it is gonna be a leader. I am a forum freak and look forward to learning, sharing, and helping this forum grow.
