Tim and I have been throwing the idea of brewing beer back and forth for a few weeks, and we finally got off our butts, went to the store and picked up a starter brewing kit. We brought it home and a few hours later, we had some beer brewing! On the advice of the nice people at the homebrew shop, we decided to start with an English Brown Ale (apparently it’s harder to screw up!). I really want to make some IPA and maybe a honey wheat beer eventually!
We had watched a demo a few weeks ago, so we knew the basic process, but the instructions were very clear and it would have been easy enough on our own. I made a little slideshow to show you the process! I’m happy to report that our fermentation is going well and we should be bottling beer in about a week! If you’ve made beer before, we’d love any advice – we’re just kind of winging it!
