So, my MRB should be here tmorrow if UPS Tracking can be trusted.
After work today, I decided to go see my parents. Dad and I were hanging out on the porch drinking a cold one, and talking about Alabama vs Notre Dame coming up in a couple days.
I mention that I ordered a beer brewing starter kit, and I'm going to see if It's something I like. Told him he was going to be my test subject.
He said, "Oh Yeah? Huh." Wandered back into his garage, and gave me what looks like 2 white 5 gallon buckets filled with beer brewing supplies.
Not sure exactly what I have, so here it all is:
I also just noticed that some of the "ingredients" expired back in 1996 HAHAHA
All the pictures are *Clickable Thumbnails*
These are the white buckets. Only 1 of them has a hole drilled in it for (I'm guessing) a tap.
This one is pretty self-explanatory.
Here is where I run into questions:
I get the scrubby brush, not sure what to scrub with it...
The clear hose is for....?
That tiny black cap is for....?
That white and red thing I think is a tap for the side of the bucket.
The clear plastic thing beside it is.....?
The bag of bottle caps are self-explanatory.
This is a Hydrometer... pretty self-explanatory though I don't yet know how to use one.
Here are the two (I'm guessing Premade) beer recipes. They expired in 1996... hahah so I'm guessing my dad had this in his garage for a while!
Here is a big bag of corn sugar. I'm guessing its bad too? How long does it keep for? The above beer premixes expired in 1996...
Also a neat little brewing book, and some cleaner... not sure if that can expire too.
The long clear tube at the bottom I'm guessing and hoping is a bottle wand? It has a small spring in the end of it with a plastic contraption.
Also came with a bunch of "snazzy" directions... hahaha
