    Welders are great. I sure hope the tire fired brewery comes to life.

    Okay so it's been some time, but i've found that my work uses a malt syrup by the pallet and I can get it at cost. So once my hops plants put out (I forget what is what so it'll be a fun blend) I'll have the makings for a really cheap brew. Might do a small partial mash, but not having to make a mash tun will save a lot of water movement.
    All I need now is one burner and stand. I'll pick up some cinder blocks next time I"m at the home depot. I'm still not sure if I should use wood, propane, wood pellets, used motor/cooking oil, or gasoline.

    I would think propane would be the easiest choice. But being redneck... wood pallets or used motor oil would be the responsible choice.

    Indian stile, I like that. I don't know about curry in the beer... or it not being alcoholic...

    I would go with the wood pallets and soak in the used motor oil. Especially if you have easy access to both and I think you would for the pallets.

    Good call, a rocking stove big enough to burn a pallet cut in thirds would be a great thing to have for many things....

    I don't know the other purposes yet, but come the zombie take over of 2018 it'll be more clear.

    It really depends how long they've been dead and how long they've been undead. But I much rather eat brains.... oh crap... are zombies ever self aware of their condition?

    I don't think so. In fact I read somewhere that Hannibal lecter, capture them, tie them down, crack the skull open and scoop brains and sautéed with a nice butter sauce.

    gross. butter sauce is way to fattening. i'd go for a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh garden herbs.

    Red brick, cinder blocks; I was planning on lining the burner with something more fire proof, but does it matter? How hot can red brick get? And if over heated what happens? melt down or crumbly?
    The insulation factor of something like cat litter mixed with saw dust would be nice for a better burn....
