Despite everything else going on, I actually do brew beer, too.
Don’t get me wrong; I like talking about where I’ve been and what I’ve drank, I like reviewing and sampling and it is always nice to have other news organizations or blogs give me something to write about.
But I also brew and now’s the time on APfD when I get to talk about how that’s been going.
Pretty good, actually. We’ll start with this alt I made:
See that, up there at the top baby? That there is foam.
It isn’t much but damnit, the beer is carbonated.
Um…no, actually, I don’t remember exactly how it tasted. I drank it all before this post and was just so excited the beer was properly carbonated that I pretty much forgot everything else. Still; it was good beer and the recipe is as follows:
.25 lb Crystal 60
1 lb Pils malt
.25 lb Karafa II
6.5 lb LME
1 lb pils malt dry
.5 oz Northern Brewer @ 60
