Making Beer

August 16, 2010

Darcy got a beer kit for her birthday (from her wonderful husband) so we started the process a week or so ago. Not too hard, just boil stuff, stir it and hide it in the dark. I’ll post more once we bottle it.

Darcy Stirred. A Lot.

  1. Awesome! I’ve been wanting to home-brew for a long time. Just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’m interested to hear how the beer kit beer ends up tasting. I have a few friends who are serious homebrewers and while most of them started out that way, they all take it way more serious (giant propane burners, huge steel drums to boil the mash, they keg their beers rather than bottle, etc).

    What style of beer did you make? An Ale? Lager?

    I am a huge fan of IPAs and Pale Ales. You can’t make it too hoppy for my taste. That’s probably the style of beer I would brew once I get started. Definitely post some feedback.

    How long are you going to let it sit? 2 months?

    I’ll definitely post some feedback, though I’ll probably post Darcy’s comments and not mine, I can’t stand most beer.

    We made an Irish Stout kit, so we’ll see how that turns out.

    I doubt she’ll let it stand on the shelf long, some will probably be consumed in a few weeks after bottling.

    I’ll let you know how it goes, the kit we got seems to be a pretty good one thus far, same for the guide book I got her.
