It’s been a while since I brewed a beer.
So, I took advantage of a snow day to get a couple done up. And it was nice to get back to brewing. That being said, I hit up a couple of easy kits, but to me that’s fine as it got me liking things again. Which means I now need to start brewing more.
I have a bunch of things that I had gotten a while back — so I hope none of the ingredients have gone bad. I’m honestly not sure how that all works, but I’ll find out in a few weeks as these two beers start to take shape.
And then I’ll start brewing all the others.
I think what I’d like to do for the next couple of months is try to get some of these beers rotating and brewed. I only do the one-gallon batches, so it’s not too bad. This might mean a trip to a brew shop to get a couple of one-gallon jugs so I can have 3-4 fermenting at once. And I might need to get some new bottles to have them handy. The beauty of the one-gallon batch is that you only get like 9-12 beers out of it.
On the other hand, I do have a couple of two-gallon batches, so I can use the old Mr. Beer kegs for those.
I’m excited for these because I haven’t brewed in a long time. The smell on each was good and I had a slight taste of each, and liked the flavors. I’ll be excited to see how it moves along with the yeast and all the good stuff. Bring on the beer!
I’ll also have to think of the name for these beers as I like to keep the beers in my “brewery” on Untappd.
By this point, I had expected to be way further along in my brewing. I still have a lot to learn and looking at several feeds on Instagram makes me realize that. It’s amazing some of the things people know and can do when it comes to brewing.
For now, I just keep it simple.
And in about a month, I’ll get to see what these two beers taste like. Hopefully pretty tasty!
