Looks like a great experience, but the picture labeled "Grain out" - looks like you are at the top of the mash lauter tun.  Don't they have a man way at the bottom to dump and rake it out?

The mlt sits on top of the hlt. So that man way is flush with the false bottom of the mash tun. A little Below that point is the weld that marks the separation.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who likes to brew in a hat. ;)

The hat's ok, I'm just glad he had pants!

it was a close call. went with pants at the last minute. wore the kilt to brew club tonight though. fortunately no pictures

Very cool, Jonathan.  And I fixed that for ya.  I've seen you in a kilt. ;)

Very cool. I had a meal at Thirsty Bear last summer and loved the place, too bad I won't be back in time to try your beer.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
