Time to Streamline

Over the years I have accumulated way too much stuff, it's getting to the point where I cannot walk thru the pub anymore. So its time to cut back. Just how many corny kegs does one person need? How many fermenters? Slowly putting everything up for sale, it will be nice to have room once again.

107 APA

Predicting record highs in the 107-108 range, so I'm brewing an APA! A man has to have fun on his vacation, right? The grain......
Going to do a no-sparge at 150 degrees, a 11 gallon batch, 14 pounds of Idapils, 6 pounds of Vienna, 1.5 pounds of 60l Crystal.
At 60 minutes .8 ounces of Chinook, 1 ounce of Cascade at both 30 and 15 minutes and two ounces of cascade at knockout. And then the chill begins.
Note the pre-chiller in the cooler. Will ice that down when the temp drops to 120.
