Well, Saturday was the event. Despite the hurdles, it was a success. Now, as has been expressed to the people in charge of such things, *never again*. I suppose things could have been worse; as it was, we only had to jury-rig water. The alarm was disconcerting--it turned out to be from the boiler, to let us know that the electricity to the boiler had been cut, after a surge. The classes went well, although getting things started and finished on time was quasi-organized chaos. Nevertheless, things seemed by & large to go fairly smoothly.
Next on the hit parade: brewing next weekend. I think I'll do a basic amber ale--gotta have stuff ready to go for spring and summer, after all.
