Today went quite smooth with the brewing I think. No accidents or anything crazy and only a few close calls to serious boil overs. Like I said before, its a much different perspective. I’ve helped friends brew before and have been very involved but brewing your own batch is much different and way better. As a helper, well, you just help. The focus on the beer itself is much greater when you do it yourself. In a weird way it becomes very personal. As for anything, you learn the more you do it. What I’m finding is that it seems like timing, sanitizing, and prep are key. The ingredients are the ingredients and its what makes the beer but those three things require much detail and are extremely helpful. Its a lot of work but its fun work. Would I do it again? You bet your ass I will. And soon too.
