Moving a brewery

I moved house in the weekend, to a much better place with more room, not only for me and my family, but for my brewery :o) I now have a garage/man cave and a rumpus/bar to play with...

Ive moved plenty of times before, but this was the first time ive ever moved my brewery, it got me thinking that once again im glad that I just do BIAB, as everything can be carted in the car boot instead of the need for a flat deck truck or trailor.

Brewery Update

Things at the brewery have been on the go slow for the last month, and I have experienced a dwindling of stock to the extreme.

I pray the day will turn out fun:

When at the end of this brew day,

Give me a ferment with no delay.

Now I add my water to the grain,

I ask the day is not in vain;

Guard the temperature at sixty-five,

Does anyone have any good Porter recipes they'd like to share? I'm looking at making a Porter for the winter and would like some ideas if possible, I normally do a partial mash (grains, hops and a can of malt extract) and am looking for an excuse to put my black malt and roast barley to good use!

Cheers in advance! :D
