You'll notice some before and after shots. Specifically before the brewers decorate their spots and after.

Going through day two. My feet and hands hurt. We took 1:15 to unload 14 pallets
of ice into all the keg tubs. That was round one. Gotta do it again before 5pm. Brewers
and media are coming in now. New obstacles as we sling 20# bags -o- ice...

Definitely earning my beer. Brought my phone charger today, I'll check later if there
are any pic requests...

Edit: use the arrow keys not the mouse...


But I used to buy a bag of Doritos, and buy the nacho cheese and make Dorito Nachos...

Carlos- I'll message you personally. I'm in Northfield- 20 minutes from Apple Valley. My kegs are currently dry. I have a 5# CO2 tank set up. It's yours for the event.

If you come through for Carlos, you da man!!! Thank you!

You have already taken the kegs there as checked baggage on a plane?  What airline let you do that, and who did you have to talk to to get it worked out?  I didn't realize they would let you do that.

Sorry I can't help, I'm further from MN than you are.

It was United Airlines. Carlos was diligent in contacting their dangerous goods desk and making sure that anything
checked met the guidelines. Specifically low psi, low alcohol(<6%abv), and most importantly DECLARED.
I have to admit that I helped with minor assistance with the construction of the encasing of the kegs. But they
were clearly marked with directional UP arrows, Fragile stickers. Individually bagged, and wrapped in bubble wrap,
placed in a wooden frame crate wrapped in corrugated cardboard, and most importantly weighed to ensure they
came under the maximum checked baggage weight of 70# (61 and 58# respectively.)

I would love to say that I had a say in it but really I only made sure some screws were ground down from even
coming close to the kegs. Carlos did ALL the work.

To the home brewers, in the twin cities area. I need help in the form of a CO2 system.
Specifically a small 5# tank and regulator to borrow for a "Welcome Home" Party for
one of our troops. A man, Kyle, just arrived home from deployment in the middle east
and his uncle Carlos told him before he left that he would brew some beer for his return.

Well he is back but Carlos is in Colorado, with access to the twin cities for his party but
would like to borrow a CO2 system to push the beer for the party. He has asked me to post
for him and he will chime in.

If anyone has access to a system we could borrow that would be super cool. He'd rather not
buy one in MSP due to the shipping and regulations with airlines and getting it back to Colorado.

It is a pin lock system, but he has extra gas-in pieces if it is a ball-lock system with threaded
lines.

And how about Natchitoches?

That's an indian name.

Kinda like the Econlockhatchee River that runs through Oviedo   ;D
We have a lot of those around here too, but they tend to be easier to pronounce.  Except maybe for places like Sequim (SQUIM) and Puyallup (pyoo OL up).

The one the Mike Rowe taught me was Geoduck... It still bugs me a bit.

I love the Rockies, I really do. I wish I had much more time to explore them...

Give him time, he's new to the Rockies...

What I am impressed with, every snow bank I have encountered in late summer is hard as rock...very little give
let alone enough to allow writing...Still neat though.

A stream of warm liquid facilitates writing in such cases... ;D

He declared that it was not yellow writing. If warm liquid was not the writing utensil of choice, fingers would have struggled
with the snow I have encountered...

Makes me think that Dave was fully hydrated.  8)

 8) Here is a chance to meet a celebrity.   8)

I will be in Durango on the 8th. I hope to hit Ska brewing and Durango Brewing Co.
and possibly, Carver brewery, and Steamworks brewing...

Of course if anyone does meet up with me, it will limit my breweries as I figure a good
convo on beer will ensue and some food may be ordered but what the hell. I am up for
a good beer and good company any time.

Whadya say? Huh, Sean T, Jaybeerman, pinnah, and anyone else out west/southwest...??!?!?

PS. I know it is not an easy drive to Durango from, well anywhere in the region, But if you
had planned a trip there for something I figured I'd drop a line...

« on: August 25, 2011, 09:53:42 PM »
I'm with you guys, no beers until I'm (nearly) done.  Not before chilling anyway.  Inspiration is great during recipe development, getting inspired while brewing leads to some bad brews.
I'm breaking my rule.  It's boiling, not  I'm chilling.  ;D
Fixed that for you.

I will be the first to admit that I don't always abstain while brewing as mentioned but sometimes I'll have one or two in 4-6 hours at most before finishing the process. I used to pop one open at the time the mash started. It was never a marathon drinking session just a RDW kind of brew day and it seemed appropriate. But listening to the group, it makes sense. No need to add alcohol to the laundry list of dangers. Glass carboys 'splodin' and brewing in the garage near a gas tank, or high temps of boiling wort...With my luck I am amazed I don't have any brew battle scars...

So I'll add, XX.) Be safe.
