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!
