Default Brewed up a RIS and took some pictures

I may not have all sorts of cool equipment, but it still makes beer.


Here is my homemade stir plate, very simple, but does the job. This is also the stepped up starter after a 2000ml was already finished and decanted.


Crash cool the starter and poured off the beer


The new barley crusher and 10G round cooler

Grain.... mmmmm....



1oz of Magnum hops


End of Mash, no heat loss


This is how I measure how much I put into the boiler, this 8Qt pot has notches on the side so I usually fill to 6 or 7, pour into the boiler and keep track until I hit my boil volume

HLT and boil bot, even a level helps with leveling my measuring pot since the concrete is a little slant


First Wort Hop


Pre-Boil gravity at 78 degrees

A pint of Mac & Jack's African Amber next to the pool


Nice yeast slurry


Straining the hops out

That is a lot of head


RIS on the left


Heater for the water, keeping it at 67


After 3 hours, I forgot to take a picture at 7 hours, and the flow off 1 gallon container was over filling at 20 hours.


It was a successful brew, the final gravity was 1.095

Love the pics! If I do an RIS I'm definitely using some foam control in the fermenter

Yeah, that would have been a good idea. I lost maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a gallon. The foam was on its way down this morning, but the bubbles were still like 3-4 a second.

Lol, actually I took it from my Dad, he use to use them for keeping track of tax documents. This was for the 1987 docs I believe
