Default A Great American Brew Day! (1 of 2)

Well, it's been a while since I've had a brew day here. We moved just before Christmas. We started prepping for the move well in advance and it's taken a while to get settled in... according to my log book my last brew day was 10/11/08 (BIG INTERNET SAD FACE!)

Time to play catch-up and refill my bare shelves!

Today's brew is an AHS mini-mash kit for a Texas Bock. It has very little (2.5 pounds) steeping grains so I decided to use a tiny drinking cooler as a mash tun.

Starting off nicely - welcome to South Florida!

Preparing the operator! That thing at my feet is half weinerdog, half manatee!


While I check the temp on my micro-mash tun, Sully guards the brewpot. Good boy, Sully!

That thing IS the biggest "dackel" dog i've ever seen. What the heck do you feed'em?

Looks like you had fun.

Is that a drinking homebrew out of the bottle foul?

Oh, and I'm fascinated by the half manatee. I've never seen one before!
