I went to a baby shower yesterday. I knew that my nephew was coming over to brew beer with Mr. G. I did not however, expect them to still be "brewing" when I got home at 4:00 in the afternoon!! But they were. I walked into what looked like a lab experiment! Here are the two mad scientists.
Brewing your own beer is really not for sissies. It is a loooooong process! And you have to know some math! That leaves me OUT! Greg and Don are math minded, and smart. They understand chemistry. You put strange things that look like rabbit pellets into beer.
The brew goes into a special sterilized bucket, with an air vent in the top. The yeast is added, and the bucket is sealed and left to let the yeast do the rest of the work.
And finally, it goes into a lined trash can, filled with water to keep the temperature as stable as possible. It will sit in our stil...er...garage for 2 weeks. At which time, we will bottle, cap and enjoy! In the mean time, we have to come up with a label, and a name for this batch of beer. Suggestions?
And...GO GREEN BAY!!!
