I think if were gunna be sitting around talking beer all afternoon it will be quite simple for us to do a simple allgrain brew with the MLT and copper washer.
all you need else is a piece of hose.

too brew or not too brew that is the question.

it won't require much attention.

i propose these apointments
ken sanitation supervisor
jayse HLT and final CFC supervisor
some new brewers to mash tun supvisors
and batz and BBB to boil supervisors

anyone else gets malt and hops measurements and malt crushing.

kens got enough stuff to make the recipe up on the day.
i propose a robust porter.
i'll bring same carafa type 2 for the roasted malt additions

anyway good idea or not?

Boil Supervisor!!!!!!!!!!!

Well ! I will have to wear my hat.

Or Batz's definition means that we might be riding brooms to Ken's Anzac Day :ph34r:

Male brew Witches enjoying themselves.

:chug: :chug: :rolleyes: ;)

If everyone is willing to help and contribute - we can do an All Grain beer.

We could also, do one to fit into the steve nicholls mash paddle competition - enter as an Aussie homebrewer Team compilation.

I will ahve to get my act together.

Will need to choose a suitable recipee...

Who is up for it...

glad to see your up for it ken.
will just make it simple no need for any flashy setup but you will need you CFC working or you could make up you herms coil and use it for a imersion chiller on the day.
let me now if you need any connections to finish of a cooler.
or alternatively i could bring one of my CFCs' which are all ready plumbed.

to late for anymore entries for the mash paddle even if he did take such a brew i reckon it would be deducted points straight from the start for not being based on a individuals skills as the comp is intended.
so it would never make it to the second round for that reason.

we could do a mountian goat pale ale type beer with your cryer malt and crystal hops.
you really need ale malt for either a mash paddle beer or my suggestion of robust porter.

anyway iam willing to do my bit.
so far its 6 against 2 for brewing.

happy brew times ahead

I'm hoping to be able to rock up, but probably won't be able to make it for the whole day - been away worknig over a few weekends lately, so I'm beginning to forget what my daughter looks like..... and who is that woman that keeps hanging around my house ??

Besides, I need to get my hops off Ken !! And I need a new coloured picture to stick on my beer fridge (only Ken will get that one) :D

Hope to see you guys there

This mash stuff is a total mystery to me, so I'll do what I'm told and go were I'm pointed (within reason).

Does this change the start time, 'cos there's more work to be done?

Start time...

What does every one want - i can accomadate from 11-00am.

But, the earlier the better if we are going to brew.

I have run out of EKG Hops - can someone bring some up.

Jayse,

What recipee are we doing - do you want to do a theakstons AG or a thomas hardy barley wine or a skunk fart.

I like the sound of the first 2.
Then i should be able to mail a bottle out to those who helped out in the brew.

Ken....

don't really like the idea of trying to clone those two big beers you mentioned ken.
To make it easy i wouldn't try and make a big OG wort.
just stick with a basic pale ale that you can ferment with any ale yeast you have.
or you could do a steam beer with the 2112 easily.
just use the cryer malt, some crystal malt and those american hops santium, crystal and ahtanum together.
this beer will be along the same lines as my APA.
with the T.O.P it involves other sugars in the boil and the barley wine takes much more effort to brew.

anyway thats my thoughts, keep it simple.

cheers jayse

Shit, i have been looking at this thread, Im like Who the heck is Ken, I only knew him as GMK, hahaha

Well id love to see a AG demo, Like Wee Stu, Im a amateur though, BUt this might be the stepping stone we both need :)

We could all throw a few gold coins in and that way we could grab a bottle each once its all finished??? sound ok?

So we're bringing some salad's/meat??? and some gold coins :)

Ben

PS: do you need any bottles Ken? I could bring some up if you intend on bottling it to send out, I have a shitload of crown lager bottles i dont mind sacrificing

Crown larger bottles sounds excellent.

If you need bottles I have fair few Hahn premium stubbies clogging up part of the shed.

Mate who used to brew gave me them, and he's hassling me for the large wooden crates they came in!

Need a good bleach bath, they were in his shed a while before coming to mine! - but I can get them ready for Anzac day if wanted. I think there's over a hundred.
