Just out of curiosity, how many woodburners also have generators?

    Just filled up the RV tank (30 lbs) and a BBQ 20 lb tank this last weekend for 2.19 per gallon. Diesel is at 4.26. Living on an island in the middle of the puget sound elevates the prices I would think.

    Just one more reason to buy in 25 oz. bottles.

    Just shut the gennie down when the lights came back on. High winds bad. Great electric co-op crew that had them back on in an hour good. Nasty wind and a deluge of rain.

    I make beer and cider and prefer the 22 ounce "bombers" for bottling. Much faster process but then you end up drinking 22 ounces of beer everytime you want to have a beer.

    You could always switch to vodka or some other spirit to keep you libated during an emergency situation. Never want to be caught short when the power goes down! I always try to keep an adequate supply of various wines and other beverages on hand just in case of an emergency...

    Yep.. plenty of spirits in the house, but the funny thing about beer is, you always crave it most when it's the least practical to get one.
