Online journal of my homebrewing fun.
Well currently I am working on three projects.
I found some spare parts for my stir plate yesterday. Once I get the rest I will post a picture log of how I built it and the final result. The CFC is another story all together. I got some copper tubing from a friend and have a defunct garden hose to use. I just need to figure out how to make the connections. Again, more pictures to follow.
Now for my freezerator. Since I am not a fan of what the exterior looks like, I was thinking about building a case all around it instead of just a collar. I am still working on what it will look like in my head, and how to do it without spending a ton of cash on materials. I may update and post some drawings of some ideas I've had.
On Saturday I had the pleasure of tapping my first brew. I acquired a freezer (which will be converted to a freezerator) and all the goodies to have my brews on tap. For my first batch, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. It is a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone. Not exactly like SNPA, but very enjoyable. Only problem right now is foam.. Holy crap, I get a glass-full of foam each pour. Needs to be worked on, once I get the balance, it will be great!
Saturday evening, I brewed my second batch, a Peat-Smoked Porter. I would have some pictures but, I forgot to take some.
Here is a picture of it in the primary. Below it is a picture of my first pint of the brew I call Absolute Sitter Pale Ale.
Coming soon.. Pictures of my freezer and hopefully the progress I am making turning it into a freezerator. My ideas may be not quite possible, but we'll see.
