So I mentioned already what S and family got me for Christmas, so I put it to good use to document what I got S for Christmas… all of the goods to do
our his own homebrewing.
I don’t know all of the steps, but I did take quite a few pictures of the steps:
|Tips from the book|
|Bringing up the equipment – and looking all manly|
|Our first type|
|Dropping in the malts|
|Adding the malt extract|
|The inspiration – New Belgium’s 1554|
All in all it took about 3 hours to get it going, and now we wait for awhile for it to ferment. Our first batch should be ready for tasting. While it’s not a cheap hobby, it’s definitely fun! If you like beer like we do (which isn’t for the feeling, it’s for the taste) then it doesn’t hurt to try!
