So 98EXL came up to brew at BeyerDyke brewery (my house), so we documented the occasion with pictures, and celebrated with a brew swap. We sampled, and we sampled, and we sampled some more! Mind you, my pics were taken using my blackberry camera, so some pictures turn out a little wierd. Hopefully Garrett has some better ones taken with a real camera.


98EXL watching the mash. Not a flattering picture of his haircut.


The 24" pizza we ordered for the boil. My roommate's arm shown at the top for some reference. That pizza was ungodly huge, and the first time I've EVER spent $32.50 on a single pizza.


I pic of our Irish Red.


98EXL tossing hops.

My roommate Mike and Garrett with our cooling rig.


Ghetto ass hopback.


Our wort sample. Reading it at 1.047 after temp adjustment, just .001 under style guide (and about .008 under target)


Watching the action!

Ghetto hopback in action. Aerates the wort nicely!


Our brew, before the ice bath, towel, and fan to try to keep the Steam brew down below 65F.

That was brew day! A fun day had by all, and I can't wait to see the brew at the end.

What does your ghetto ass hopback consist of. It would fit in with all the rest of my equipment.

Is it a dirty sock?

That's how you get the wild yeast!

Seriously though, what are you using?

That was a hop bag stuffed down into the neck of the carboy. Normally I just use a strainer on my bucket, but when filling carboys, I need something to catch the sludge. So we call it the ghetto ass hopback.

Ha! I've got a very unflattering picture of Mike's stomach (aside from the pic above) that I didn't post. Maybe when I get back I will post that. We need a buddha look-alike contest on here!

I really think I have an infection. Went and checked just now during lunch, and there is this really dark brown area of bubbles in the krausen. I really don't think it looks good, I have yet to see anything like this
