Default Everyone loves pictures! This and last weekends fun!

I took pictures this week and last week of everything I've done, and I figured everyone loves looking at pictures, so I'd share.

I'll start at the end, then the beginning

This is what I have sitting in a closet, 1 week old stout in the secondary, and fresh not even 24 hour old pilsner in the primary.


everything sanitized and ready to go


Ready to transfer into the primary carboy


rehydrating the dried yeast

Onto the pilsner.....less pics, but just as fun!


Cleaned just over a case of Sam Adam bottles while I was sanitizing, and waiting for the girlfriend to come over


Used this yeast with my Munton's kit instead of the dried yeast


Got the pic off to late, but my dog was sniffing the carboy...she knew what was up!


SWMBO pitching the yeast

And this is what I know have in a closet. I didn't take any pictures of transferring to the secondary, but you get the idea.

I dunno, I like the no boil kits, but I think I may be ready to step it up a notch, will decide over the next week or so.

Thanks for sharing those great pix.
You may want to consider pitching your yeast in the carbouy prior to adding the wort.
Aearation, Aeration, Aeration.

Thanks, I didn't pitch the yeast until after transferring into the carboy, since that is what the directions said from the LBHS, but I'll try that next time

thanks, and yes, I/we are having so much fun, it's been great. I think I may have gotten a buddy hooked on the idea, he was impressed with the basic setup

I only hugged the beer once, and the SWMBO does not get jealous, she is just as excited about it as I. I catch her looking at the brews a lot!
