Note to self

I've gotta get a turkey fryer while they're still kicking around stores. The more I think about it, the more I want to brew outside spring through fall. Weather around here is, in its way, quite beautiful, and clean-up would be sooo nice. I'd also like to have semi-parties where, say, members of the Amalgamated Brewers Guild would relax in camp chairs, bullshit, and drink while I boil a batch. What's not to like? I'm inspired in this endeavor by Jeremiah and his kick-ass brew sculpture (which, were I more technically clever, I would somehow link to a picture of), and also by Brendan's brew blog, which has some outdoor brewing scenes ( http://ioniaales.com/), as well as various other people's sites. Perhaps I'll shop around this weekend. I'm pretty sure it can be done really cheap.

I really like the Eastman Outdoors Fryers.- They can easily support a converted keg and 10+ gallons. It was just under 50, on sale. I have seen a few others but they weren't as stable.

Brewing outdoors is fun, except for when it's freezing or below.. Thank god the chiller didn't freeze up.
