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 (, 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.
