Looks like we have a little bit of a broken pipe problem.

Just a reminder about how fragile our infrastructure really is. Also a reason to have homebrewing equipment hanging around. An 8-gallon brewpot and enough star san for 40 gallons of sanitizing solution (for soaking rinsed plates, etc) are handy things to have on hand in case of an emergency....

Ayup. Two 5-gallon canning pots, two 9-gallon boil pots, a quart of iodophor, and a gallon of startsan should go a long way in this emergency.

That's assuming I do anything during this emergency besides drinking beer, of course.

I found myself wanting iodophor a little bit. but the kettle is super-nice. Easy to just top it up from the electric kettle. also, my ever-present spray bottle of star san is always handy.

Yipes, thanks! My dad didn't mention anything about this when I talked to him earlier today.. I emailed his caretakers to make sure they know.
