A set of circumstances has come up and all the stars are in line for a brewing marathon for the punkin's brew Shed.

First due to holidays and work commitments i haven't been able to brew for a few weekends, add an infection that had me tipping out 4 kegs worth of Summer ale and a decision to switch to no chill.

Throw in my twelve new cubes and have it all align with a week off and not much to do and you have a brewathon.

Yesterday saw me do 4 cubes of Smurto's golden variation for my first no chill as well as crack the grain for todays 3 cubes of a Saaz Blonde that's in the mash tun now.

While i was waiting for the mash i've ground the grain for tommorows brew of 4 cubes of my Victory Brown.

That will have me pitching the blonde in a fermenter tommorow leaving me 4 empty cubes that i haven't decided what to do with yet.

300 litres in 4 days and loving it. B)

haha nice. I am starting to get my stocks back up with one kegged yesterday, 3 fermenting and 1 cube ready to go but might brew again in the next few days. Might as well make the most of having no work so when I do have work I still got cubes there to ferment and not worry when I can fit a brew day in

Your blonde looks the goods jyo. I'll be putting the three cubes in the fermenter in the morning :)

Still have to work out what to do for my last brew on fri. Was thinking i don't have anything really hoppy and i don't have a wheat beer either.

May look for something light coloured and lightly hopped with a stack of wheat and rye in it. B)

Got to love no chill for the convenience factor. Not only it saves time, but you can easily stockpile.

Good effort!
