Brew Day

Lots of new parts equals lots of hiccups I've found. This was the third beer I've done with this system, about to brew the 5th this weekend.

This was a Robust Porter that's currently conditioning on 2kg of raspberries. There's a few pics that I missed on the Porter brew but took the photos again on the next day hence a few pics of the wort being quite light.

I'll shut up now and get on with it.…

Kid in a Candy Shop Chronological Monologue.

Have a look at the time this post has been added. There are no errors here – and the matter is made worse by the fact that I haven’t had any sleep yet. I can’t shut my damned mind up. I can’t stop thinking about what was probably one of the best 2 subsequent days in my recent life (aside from getting married and conceiving a child… of course).

This'll be my last brew for about 3 weeks I think.

Experiwheat is another (2 weeks in a row now) spur of the moment brew that I "thought about". Last week, I was inspired by the realbeer.co.nz forum to brew a Schwartzbier - which I must say is coming along swimmingly. This weekend, I knew I needed to keep the levels of stock up, as they had been hammered somewhat over the summer period. Demand was up and supply was down. I'm going to have to have my assistant brewer take care of… Continue

Ace of Spades
