Forecast for this weekend looked terrible. Canceled plans of bike riding, and
brewed my third batch indoors.
(disclaimer: crappy celly pics ahead)
Here's a list of ingredients I used:
7.42# Alexander's Pale Ale Extract
1# Crystal 60L Steeping Grains
1.25oz Cascade hops (bittering, 60min)
1oz Cascade hops (flavoring, 30min)
0.75oz Cascade hops (Aroma, 5min)
Wyeast 1056 American Ale Liquid Yeast
Warming up water for steepage:
Neighbor next door has a reverse osmosis filtration system he uses for salt water fish tanks...Free water for me?
Steeping grains. Rigged thermometer holder. hah Floating thermometer?
After 30 min of sitting, grains were removed to drain. Used one of the clips to stick it to the hood. Brilliant!
Heating up to a boil and preparing extract (i.e. warming up container in water to make it easier to pour)
Wort boiling away, bittering hops added (empty extract container to the right)
