Shouldn't be a problem, I have a full chord of firewood seasoned and ready to burn so no need to bring any.. Also everyone is welcome to pitch a tent, but I am fortunate to have a large house that has plenty of room to crash in comfortably. Might wanna bring a sleepin bag or something... John Pavy and his wife got dibs on the spare bedroom, but I have two more available and another pull out in my finished basement. Looks like its gonna be a chilly one Saturday. Garage is heated for beer making but a little drafty for some combustion air and ventilation. My wife and daughter are outta town so man law applies this weekend ;).

Picked up the grains and yeast yesterday and set up the rig so we are ready to rock and roll. I am trying to fight off a little bug that seems to be going round and hopefully I can kick it. Will keep everyone posted if anything changes, but expecting to pull off this Hopstock shindig... I may even pick up some more grain to brew up another big batch of my Zombie Dust clone. :)

Fighting it off like a pro this am.. I think I will be all good to go. Made a yeast starter last night as this massive IPA will need it to get us to 10.1%ABV. Gettin excited, we will have to make sure to snap a pic of SkyDaddy Brewing Company's inaugural co-op brew day with all parties involved.

Got a few calls over the last day or so asking about what to bring. I think the best idea is to ask that if you can bring a craft beer to share and maybe even a side dish/munchie that would help out alot. Brewing beer is more standing around and waiting than anything! That gives opportune time to cram down a fistful of guacamole or a pint of somethin good till we wrap it up....Then bring on the main course.

My guess is that we may end up taking a collection to get sum tasty pies from our local vendor and make it easy on ourselves...

**The big batch of a two-hearted that I made for the event is carbing up nicely but will be a little young for the beer. Good none the less.. Gives some insight to how the flav develops and is a unique taste/aroma that you can only get from homebrewing. I decided not to filter it and it leaves some small hop particles in that should clear up after a gallon or so goes down...cheers!

Was tempted to bring out some dough and all the ingredients as standing around waiting for beer to brew is opportune for throwin' pies together. But slammed with work this week and not much time to prep so we'll have to throw another shin dig down in da Holland when we can fire the wood oven! So quac it is!!... I bring summa dat wit sum fresh chips! I didn't see West mention Hop Slayer so perhaps I can fill in the gaps with my personal stash! 8)

SUP is cancelled (wind and temps)! Good news I guess cause I'd rather hang out with some of my buds that I haven't seen in a while and drink some good beers. Hitchin' a ride with Pier. Looks like all bases are covered on the food/beer side so I'll chip in extra for the pizzas. Landboarding perhaps? 8)

Glad to hear you can make it!

Grill is ready and available if we wanna make up sum brats, or whatever... Got propane and all is well. See everyone tomorrow! I will make a cant miss sign for yall coming. The ground is very soft and muddy and pitchin a tent is gonna be a very messy proposition to those whom wanted to. Would like to keep the lawn as in tact as possible. I am more than certain I can host indoors or if you wish pitch on the pavement. Lets play it by ear....

Guys,
The temptation so see so many of you without rubber... pardon, neoprene, is just overwhelming, so screw the work, I'd love to come... But I couldn't figure out from all the posts - what time are you planning to be there?

This is from an earlier post:

I would like to say we brew from 1-4 or somewhere thereabouts. I will have the water hot and ready and set up for the event to cut down on brewing time. Anytime someone wants to come over and hang is cool by me... I will get a start on set-up around 11am or so and have the grill ready for anyone wantin to cook up somethin.

I'm planning to shoot for 11:30am. I was all set to bring foil, chips and taco shredded cheese to make nachos either on the grill or in the oven, plus guacamole, some of my favored hops companions, so I'm glad to see it's a theme!

Yeah Mike, I got a mixed case of Hopslayer, Jack Stout, and Phat Chance from the pub; some cheese and crackers and smoked fish, and a couple of pounds of shrimp I aim to BBQ up...TG is bringin' a full cooler which means a FULL cooler, plenty of Michigan microbrews, and who knows how much food....

we Texans used to have a saying about a BBQ like this....."you come empty-handed we smash your car and leave you stranded", just a little anecdote to remind folks that when everyone pitches in, it always turns out great.......... 8)
