According the calendar, all of the things fermenting could be bottled
this weekend. Rachel won't be around so ... bpt and Sebastian: both of
you get to bottle this weekend if you're up for it.

I should have the port of the mash tun basically done today -- in a bit
I'm heading over to home despot to grab a pipe cutter and the last
o-ring we need (hopefully). I might even manage to get the mash tun
manifold build (except for slotting the drain pipes) as long as we
really don't need to solder anything.

I'm not sure we can get the mash tun and kettle into shape enough to actually
brew a ten gallon batch this weekend... but we're also down to 3
weekends before it's too late to make solstice beer. I propose that, if
we get everything working, we do a batch of JWHEATZ (chamomile won't be
here in time I suspect...).

But I'm thinking that we won't, and a better idea would be to knock out
some Nowruz. If Sebastian and Luke can both attend and Bpt offer
assistance we could ... bottle (bpt + Sebastian primarily), brew (me),
and grind out the kettle (Steve), with Luke as our go-to lackey for each
task ;)

unknownlamer: I got a rack.
Erica: you have breasts?
unknownlamer: No. A music rack.
Erica: breasts that sing
