Brew Update

Pictured:

Rear Center: My neighbor’s steam style ale, just moved from primary to secondary fermentation.

Right: My Frankenbeer. I’m still not sure what to make of this. But once it’s done, it’s going to go into that keg, and then we’ll see how it tastes…

Left: The Stone Vertical Epic 06.06.06 clone. This should end up being a strong dark Belgian Ale, and was racked onto the yeast from the Frankenbeer. It started fermenting nearly immediately, and is blowing so well that it’s pushing foam through the blowoff tube into that bucket. It should be in the 7.5% ABV range by the time it’s done, and the brew process seemed to go well. So I think it will be a nice beer once it’s done.

  1. How hard is it to get set up making your own beer? Is it expensive? Have you posted previously a how-to?

  2. It’s not hard at all. You can start for under $100. My initial kit probably cost around $150, but there were a few upgrades. Obviously the more in-depth you get, the more expensive you can make it, just like any hobby. But you can make some great beer with just the basic kit.

    I haven’t posted a how-to, but you can check out Howtobrew.com or beeradvocate.com for more information on the process.

    Or, if you’d like, you can come up at some point and observe a brew day. If you’re interested, let me know…

  3. Brad, don’t spill any of that stuff on the carpet.
