Are you prepping, Mort?

What's wrong with prepping? Its why I started brewing. What's the point of surviving the ZA if there's no beer?

But none related to collecting cooling water.

just make sure you are using an RV hose or other potable water hose to connect to your cooling water source.  regular hose water is NASTY.

Thanks Blatz, I thought of that and getting an RV hose today.  I just moved up from 3 gal batches to 5 gal batches and started doing my boils in the garage w/ a burner.  I still heat my mash and sparge water on the stove in the kitchen, so I'v been looking for an RV hose recently so that I can fill my water in the garage.
