Ok, so the PLAN was to be getting strike water up to temp by 6am this morning. Like all good plans, things happen. Our hockey team finally won a game last night, so we were celebrating a little later than I had originally planned. That said, I've finally doughed in on the first of 5 brews. The plan as of now is to brew 5 beers, for a total of 30 gallons of beer on the day. I'll try to remember to take pics and chronicle the whole process as the day progresses, and others show up. That said:
1st Beer: Cream Ale (Anderson Valley Summer Solstice Clone)
So here's most of the specialty grains I'll be using today, plus a few more I'll be pulling out shortly.
My specialty grains mixed with 2-row pale.
The Brew Rig awaiting it's first batch.
Ok, Doughed in at 9am, will be back at 10 on this guy. On to other beer related items!
