Homebrew update

One of Catherine’s Christmas gifts to me this year was a beer home-brew kit.  So far I have made two batches and the third will be ready soon.  The first, a Irish Stout, was an all extract kit and came out decent — more of a starter beer.  The second was a Belgian Wit and it was really good.  I used some steeping grains on that one.

Sitting in the secondary currently is an Austin Homebrew Supply Dogfish Head 90 minute clone (mini-mash kit).  It is a high gravity beer so I’m letting it age in the secondary for several weeks.  The ABV on this one is right at 9% and it has a ton of hops!

Bought a new brewpot for this batch. The first batch boiled over with Catherine's largest pot. Learned from that mistake!

1/4 oz hop pellets every 7 mins for 90 mins.
