Chamster’s Brew, Fresh Oil & Antifreeze

Chamster’s Brewery is up and running again for the Christmas Season… been a small run this year, and we only brewed a light ginger beer this season. I was fortunate enough to be able to stop by the local brewery, The Offshore Ale House in Oak Bluffs, to pick up some liquid yeast, which they gave me for free… nice guys over there and great food. So the G.B. has a nice hint of real beer this year.

In between brewing and baking, I managed to get down and not so dirty with my Yanmar, and get her winterized: clean oil for her cylinders and fresh water and antifreeze for her cooling system. Draining the oil on Chamois is so easy. There is a petcock on the oil pan and a hose to drain the oil into a small bucket placed in the bilge. Oil filling is also a breeze with the cockpit access above the engine. My cooling system flush method consists of 3 gallons of fresh water (brought down in gallon jugs from the sink in the bathroom ashore) and <2 gallons of antifreeze… all sucked out of a bucket placed in the galley.
