If you were here two posts ago, you may recall I proclaimed my love of dark beers. But I'll let you in on another little secret: I like other beers too. I like them so much that I had a bit of a panic when Aaron told me we only had a little bit of beer left in one keg. EH?! What?!
He planned on brewing some more so I asked if I could brew some too so that it would be ready for the coming summer. My choice was a Honey Hefeweizen (which I thought I should name the 'Honey-don't Hef'....because "Honey" didn't brew this one-Ha ha!). My wish was granted (or will be after 6 weeks of fermentation...)
So it started with this kit:
|burners and tanks|
|(my brewing socks)|
First water is warmed up then grains are added, and then?
Then came the boiling, adding ingredients and stirring.
After an hour, the ingredients are placed inside the white bucket to the left of me.
Then the ingredients ferment for 6 weeks.
The fermented ingredients then turn into real beer. My beer!
It is as simple as that.
I can't wait to try it!
