We have home-brew!
July 3, 2010
A fuller post to come; I’m spending this Independence Day weekend with my friends Rafa and Becca. They’re coming up here to celebrate the Fourth of July, and I probably won’t be blogging much until after the weekend.
But I bottled it! I bottled the beer, a process which was laborious, messy, and fun. The floor of the kitchen ended up coated with a thin film of beer, which I then spent the next several hours mopping.
But I’ve got beer! I brewed it, I bottled it, I even tasted some!
And, holy crap, it tastes like beer! It’s not really and truly Ready To Drink yet, because I have to let it condition/bottle-carbonate for a week (I added some more sugar. I’ll explain later).
But as for the taste, it’s pretty much exactly how I hoped it would turn out: it’s crisp, citrusy. Wheaty! I rate it a success, ladies and gentlemen, and that’s when I tried it it warm and mostly flat.
And I’ve got 48 bottles of it. You comin’ over?
