Default Hello from microbrew Mecca...Seattle.

Greets people!

As I type this - my first home brew kit is on a UPS truck somewhere between CA and WA. Should arrive Wednesday and, yes, I'm pretty excited to begin this long strange trip.

Currently reading John Palmer et al, studying cleaning techniques, sparging, mashing and making wort et al. Good lord this looks like a strange, yet cool, subculture.

Let the fermenting techniques begin!

I'm in Bothell - and I suspect my first batch will be the typical (lager) beer extract ingredient kit. My mudroom is currently 55 degrees, so yes, it's a lager of some kind for sure. I'll need to move the dive gear over to make some extra space : )

There's a few items arriving soon: a ferment bucket, hydrometer, airlock, siphon, plastic spoon, sanitizer...the rest will take a bit of collecting on my part.
