with my intrepid friends bridget and amanda (and coaching from the one and only matt anderson) we boiled water like champions!
we brewed a stout based on this recipe, called bitch's brew:
we overlooked getting a grain bag, so i made one out of cheesecloth
handy, aren't i?
the grain bag held up to the job, the pennies saved us from a boil-over, and all went well on the inaugural brew!
|steeping the grains in the grain bag|
|steeping the oats and 2-row malt|
|bridget adds the oat water to the grain water|
|malt extract is in, hops are in, on the boil!|
now we just have to wait two weeks to see how we did on our first try...
