Time Event
Sunday Brewing
The brewing went well yesterday, and we took a LOAD of pictures for your perusal. I'll attempt to get them from Ethan tonight but there are no promises. Also, look for those site updates I discussed to come shortly. I figure the plan for the pictures will be to take you through a full day of brewing as if you were there(but you weren't), so that you can see what it involves. Hopefully the pictures will be timestamped as well so that you can get some idea of how long the process takes. I don't trust my memory to give you a very accurate description. Dan probably knows better because he's got the recipes and such so he knows how long each boiling stage was and everything.

A small bit of news for you is that shortly the brewing will be moving. Soon in my basement the construction of the actual brew reactor eventually featured on the site will begin. Up until now we have been using Dan's dad's brew equipment in his garage far far away at the end of a long road. I cannot tell you how excited I am to have a basement full of beer, and beer brewing coolness. I would say that my house is going to turn into party central, but if I said that I'd be a liar. I do have a room in that same basement that features orange shag carpet and wood paneling. Perhaps we can turn that one room into party central.. It wouldn't take nearly as much party to fill the space.
This weekend's brew
Like Tam said, the brewing went well this weekend. We do have a ton of pictures and I'd like to have a look at them before I post on the lautering process. I think the visual aids in my posts are much more useful than a ton of writing. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get my hands on the pictures and do a bit of writing. Until then, have a homebrew, or if you don't have one, try a tasty microbrew.
