So much grain to mill, so much milling about to do.

Skip ahead a half-an-hour and someone decides to pour the grain into the HLT.

Whole leaf hops going into the Oktoberfest boil

Sorry I didn’t get any of the havoc that was the cooling phase, or of Greg W’s oat smoked malt Gratzer. It was a fantastic brew day and was glad those who could make it out did. Thanks to all. We’ll taste and drink come September.

There are a few more pics on the Brew Days page. ‎

Brian posted a thread on homebrew talk for a better way to communicate and talk about the upcoming group brew. As of now it’s a Berliner Weisse, stay abreast on updates and yell at us on mistakes/ideas there. Cheers.
