This will be probably my 20th batch and would like to document it because it's the first time in the new apartment.


Just getting ready for brew day. I'm doing to do a half batch (2.5 gal - only because I have more flexibility with maintaining temps)


my mini mash set up.


an experimental cider after about 6 days of fermentation

I have a few ingredients that I ordered from AHS and think I might do a Fat Tire clone for this batch.

This is what I got:

6# Munich Malt
1# Extra Light DME
1/2# 60L
1/2# Victory
1 oz Perle
1 oz Hersbrucker

Holy fail on the images. You can't link them directly from your gmail. Try hosting them on something like imgur.com or tinypic and repost them. I would actually like to see your full process once you get things fixed up.

While the boil is going, time to drain the carboy


I like to drain and then use saran wrap to protect from airborne baddies


At 25 minutes, wort chiller in the boil


Last hop addition!

sanitizing the thermometer to check when my wort chiller is finished


siphoning from kettle into clean/sanitized carboy, shook the cr%p out of it, and then added yeast

First reading was around 1.070... added some water to top it off a little more. Using the S-04. I put the carboy in a 5 gallon bucket and added some water around it. Will be maintaining a temperature around 65 once I see high krausen.
