BB’s Brew Day

Some of you might already know that The Main Man and I have been tinkering around the fringes of home brewing for some time. Our inaugural brew wasn’t much to speak of. But last weekend we set up to crack on with our next brew on the hottest weekend of the year so far. After a few technical hitches (swiftly solved by The Main Man whose levels of uber-geekness know no bounds!) we were ready for the off!

I’m not going to yap on about how to make beer (I might do that another time) but essentially we love Fuller’s ESB and we set about perfecting our own version as per the recipe from this book. Then we woke up at the crack of dawn on Sunday to begin our crazy process. We ended the day collapsed in a heap at around 8pm with a nice 19ltr tub of beer in our fermenting cupboard. Check it out.
