Double the brewing, double the fun

I set up today's Impromptu Pale Ale brew around 9:00 this morning, and started mashing in at 9:37. When the boil ended at 12:50, I started mashing in a batch of Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen. Both batches were in the fermenter and I was done cleaning up by 5:45. It's the first time I've brewed two batches in the same day at Gottberg, and it went pretty well. The worst part was the weather: the temperature and the humidity were both well into the 80s all day, and the brewhouse steamed up pretty good.

Tomorrow: fill a metric shitload of root beer kegs.

so how much exactly does a "metric shitload" weigh?

inquiring minds want to know . . .
