today we made nut brown ale!

today we started making nut brown ale. IT IS SWEET AS A NUT MATE

here are the grains. i think it's crushed roasted barley, pre milled roasted malt and pre milled crystal/caramel malt.


here are boring videos of the brewing process. steeping the grains,

then adding some malts and sugars

before everything foams up and freaks me out.

followed by boiling for 45 minutes.

that step is the best because it makes the whole house smell like a brewery. IN A GOOD WAY! hop pellets go into the worty thing two minutes before you take it off the heat.

and then water and siphoning!


 add yeast and, before you know it, it's a freaking carboy full of nut brown ale wort! wooo and etc!

should start fermenting any time now. bottling next sunday? maybe we will make a stout tomorrow? I DON'T KNOW BUT I LOVE MAKING BEER AT HOME WITH BRITISH YEAST IT IS REAL ALE BITCHES WOOO
