   Brew Session, May 22 2011

So, despite an unsuccessful first batch of beer, “Batch 0″, which I killed with light, this last brew session is already poised for success. I invited some new and old friends over to our house and we made an all-grain batch out on the driveway and an extract batch in the kitchen. It was a [...]

   Homebrew Server & Fermenter
