Ok, so my article is finally out there - the question I have - what techniques did I miss? What other things do you guys do to make more brew?

I gave it a once over last night Drew and it looked pretty good.  I'll sit down with a beer(s) and give it another eyeball and let you know.

Haven't seen the article yet, but partigyle?

2-10 gallon batches of "normal" beer, and 10 gallons of partigyle, all in around 6 hours.

I read your article last night.  It gave me a few ideas.  Thanks!

I haven't come up with any other add though.

thanks for the article! 

I've been struggling with decreased brewing time, and increased desire to home brew.... I'm already starting to plan out my holiday ale, pumpkin ale, and a mild ale (to boot!) with the help of your article.     

I have nothing to add other then to repeat my hearty thanks!

what techniques did I miss?

The ones where you convert your own recipes to extract.   :-*

You could do a bunch of different beers by doing a 100% Pilsner mash and then making the beers different by the hops and yeast in different kettles:

Munich Helles
Pilsner
Kolsch
Abbey Single
Belgian Blonde
Tripel
Belgian Dubbel (if you add dark candi sugar in the kettle for color)
Belgian Dark Strong (if you add dark candi sugar in the kettle for color)

I did something along these lines recently.  I mashed Pilsner and Munich malts and split the wort into two kettles.  Separately, I steeped some crystal 40, which I added to beer 1, and some special b and pale chocolate, which I added to beer 2.  Beer 1 became an IPA (hoppy boil) and beer 2 became a dubbel (dark candi in boil), fermented with different yeast strains.
