I brewed up a batch of beer this weekend. A friend and I went to a demo a few weeks back and it sparked both our interests again after being dissatisfied with the Mr. Beer kits. I bought some dry malt extract, brewing grains, & hops from Marcello’s and split a recipe in half. I was shocked that I lost almost a whole gallon of water during the boil which went well thanks to an inherited crawfish pot burner. Glad I didn’t have to make the whole house smell like hops! We have been researching an all grain brew and plan to do a boil August 11th.
