For anyone who may have been wondering why my daily posts were down to 1 or 2 from the usual 5 to 6 a day last week, the reason is this gorgeous brew kettle you see here. All last week I worked on building and perfecting my brand new homebrew system, which features this 30 liter Brew Kettle from Blichmann Engineering. It took some time, but now the system is all up and running, and the first batch went through yesterday, a Pumpkin Pie Weizenbock.
Homebrewing seems to be the natural step forward to beer enlightenment for the avid beer geek, or beer blogger. I have been homebrewing in various capacities for just over a year now, but I now have a system where I will have more precise control than I ever have before! To say than I am excited is a gross understatement. Coming down the pipes next will be a Mint Pale Ale and a Banana Chocolate Chip Stout.
