First Brew – well kinda…

   Posted by: Wobbles   in Homebrew

Ok, first up, this is actually from a few weeks back, but I hadn’t gotten my act together to do the blog yet, so I just took photos and much like brewing the beer itself, waited till the time was right.  This brew has already been bottled, so this is a series of photos from the process.  It ended up being not a bad drop for our first collaborative attempt, but like most brewing endeavours, there is still plenty of work to be done till we get it right.

The ingredients, tools and most important the recipe

Now I should point out that this wasn’t our first, first brew.  There have been others before, but this was the first time we were being all serious and stuff, rather than just farting about trying to make some cheap booze.  I’ll come back through this a bit later and fill in the details.
