Awesome day

Today was an awesome day in my brewing life.

I did what few brewers have ever done.

I brewed 6 beers in one day!!!!!!!!

While the rest of you were fighting mobs of people to get a Xbox for $10 off, I was brewing beer.

I started this morning in the vicinity of 10AM and finished around 10PM. I brewed the following:
Carbon Black Oatmeal Stout
Rye Pale Ale
Belgian Duppel
Metathesis Pale Ale (double batch)

All of these were partial mash recipes, so it took ever longer. I ended up with two 5-gallon pails full of spent grains. They are now sitting in my composting bin waiting until spring.

It was tricky at times figuring out what hops went where, but I did it. I had two batches going at all times. While my wife and kids decorated the house for Christmas, I brewed. I was very busy.

I will not have to brew for a few months.

Six beers in one day? That sounds like a Christmas miracle, well I guess Thanksgiving or Black Friday miracle... Miracle nonetheless!

Preparing more sacrifices for the Sewer Gods? Just kidding, good luck with the new batches. That must put just about all your equipment in play at the same time or are you now brewing in bath tubs and washing machines?

Way to go, that is one heck of an accomplishment!

Wow, and I couldn't even get two batches brewed on Friday.

Rank the taste! Which one is the best? Care to describe the metathesis brew? *Grin*

What a feat! I have never even approached such number! It is almost inhumane, perhaps such wonder should be reserved for the gods! Sounds like a fantastic way to spend the day.

Wow! This is spectacular. I love your blend of brewing and chemistry in your previous posts... We started with a similar blend of science/brewing/nerdery; our first beer was called an American integrAle.

In any case, your beer-athon sounds eventful; I hope you will update us all as to how they turned out?
