Brewing Beer

Finally, Brewing our First Batches of Beer!

We are finally making some beer! We have one test batch in a fermenter bubbling away and another two batches that will be created by the end of this weekend.

Our first batch, nicknamed “Grey Squirrel” is more of a test to help calibrate our system. We don’t have high hopes for this brew, but it was fun making it.

Starts with a Mill.
