CCH Kettle Volume

Comments regarding last brew at Hank’s House
The brew crew met Oct 13 led by the lovely and talented brewmaster, Marcel Charbonnet. It was a success with a higher than expected efficiency, perfect weather and enthusiastic brewers/visitors.

1) We used the wooden dip stick to measure cold water levels but noting the markings are fading (HMMM,WHERE CAN THAT INK BE GOING?) we used the pot brim to water level figures published earlier (and noted below). The pots hold 64 gals. when full and when all valves have finished draining, 3.6 gals. remain meaning they have about 61 gallons available with water filled to the brim.

2) Instead of the usual large single hot water boiler, we split the mash water into 2 pots and speeded up that first step.
