Just a quick post to say the brew day is done. Mike and I got through the process using only the equipment and instructions from the kit. It seemed to go pretty well, we learned a lot and in a month we’ll know if this worked or not.
A proper review of our day will be up soon.
Wish us luck 🙂
Hi Beer Enthusiasts,
I will be starting a new series of posts starting late January or early February called Steven’s Homebrewing Adventure.
My wife got me a Brooklyn Brew Shop kit (available at Chapters for those of us in Canada) for Christmas and 4 pre-packaged malt/hop/yeast combos from the same company (White IPA, Chestnut Brown Ale, Rye PA and Oatmeal Stout). The new posts will follow my experiences as a first time homebrewer including a review of the kit and packages from a newbies perspective and, once the initial packages are complete, my move into brewing recipes and eventually creating my own recipes.
Right now I am reading Randy Mosher’s book Mastering Homebrew: The Complete Guide to Brewing Delicious Beer (Chapters, Barnes & Noble) to get a better idea of what goes into brewing at home and things to think about as I move from pre-packaged recipes to following existing ones to making my own.
The posts will be tagged the same as this one along with the beer style being brewed.
Mike and I will start brewing 2016/01/16.
