    Send / upload pictures of you and your friends brewing. I'm looking for pictures of people pouring, stirring, measuring, adjusting, sampling and any other manner of brew related activity. Prefer shots that include physical activity, not just shots of you dorks standing around smiling.

    I'm working on some new site graphics and this would be a tremendous help!

    Wish I had a photo of me stirring the brew pot with my foot while playing the Bagpipes..... but I was home alone when that happened...

    I will be brewing new years day, shall I have the wife take "action shots"? You want kilt or no kilt? Mash tun stirring, grain milling, hop additions, refractometer into the sun money shot, reverse cowgirl? I will try to get the pics you want!

    i think the kilt will add a bit of homebrew class. go for it! take as many shots as you can. doing everything. not to get particular but try to get some good lighting :)

    Outdoors morning or evening sun. Low and off to the side at about your 10 or 2 usually looks the best.

    I knew there'd be a catch. At least I know you still like my chest. :D

    Pics were taken while I brewed. I have to go through them and see if any are good. Have some uber closeups of the boil, stirring the mash, and the caramelization step.

    how much hops is that? what size batch? maybe im not used to weighing out whole leaf hops, but that looks like a lot.... i thought my 3/4 lb in 10gal was a lot...

    because of the whole leaf hops, it looks like much more than it is.
    it's only 5 ounces.
    here is recipe, technically, it's an IIPA, but a weak one. i consider it just an IPA.

    Oh, wow. I might have trouble brewing my DIPA with whole leaf. The first addition is almost that much hops. I don't know if I could get all of the additions in the kettle!

    I love those things!! and Swedish fish, those are my two favorite gummy candies evar!!

    In my toolbox I have a bag of orange slices, and a glass jar of Swedish fish sitting up top for me to snack on, when it goes empty it is filled with orange slices, maybe an occasional big bag of peanut butter cups finds its way into the mix...
