I bottled my stout and decided I'm going to brew a stone levitation clone next.

Asked the person I get some of my grains from to stock Thomas Fawcett Amber malt so I can brew the DFH 90 clone.

A few days late and a little long winded.

So this past Saturday was brew day. I had help from a friend and everything went pretty darn well. Mash temp was a bit low but other than that a great day of brewing, BBQ'ing and some homemade cheesecake for dessert!

Transferred the wort into a couple ferementers around 6 pm. My friend headed home and I got on HBT and read some threads. Later in the evening I heard my neighbor who usually has a few friends over on the weekend and they often spend time watching ball games or whatever in his garage. So, feeling generous and happy I walked outside and said hey you want to try my new beer? (BeirMunchers Centennial Blonde Ale). Of course they agreed. They asked a few questions about brewing and after 3-4 shared pitchers of beer I was in a schooling mode. I wanted to tell them everything I knew about making beer, which is not a ton of info but I have learned a bit along the way.


It was fun, they all paid attention.. well why not if free beer is involved right? So I explained the use of a hydrometer and refractometer, showed them dry yeast and some yeast slurry I had in the fridge. Told them about mash temps and let them smell some different hops and grains. Just trying to share the homebrew love.

I don't think I turned any of them towards homebrewing though. They enjoy the product, one of the guys was a beer connoisseur of sorts and we a talked a bit about hops and different beer styles, but he wasn't even interested in brewing.. Ah well. Did my part for beer that day.

Well... Can't bring them all to the dark side but you can at least help them appreciate the process!

Yep. Years ago I was stationed with a guy who brewed. Had some of his beer and it was delicious but have to admit wasn't even interested in brewing; it was to complicated and intimidating at the time. LOL

I cleaned and de-labeled 2.5 cases of bottles today and put together my cheap and easy mash tun following the directions at donosborn.com. Now I just need some malt and yeast for brewing my first all grain this weekend.
