equipment upgrades

it's been over a year since our last equipment upgrade. today, we are retiring the turkey fryer for a new blichmann burner, and to start the burner off it's another round if morita mascada(aka chipotle ale).

the new burner is fast and hot. one boilover just after mashout. it'll take some extra care until we get used to the new efficiency.

next up: chocolate, marsmallows and graham crackers going into a russian imperial stout

More Chipotle!

Due to high demand, another batch of chipotle is in the fermenter....
whole chipotles add smoke and spice to this ruddish amber ale
