I showed up, albeit groggy, yet excited for brewing Guinness last Sunday. I set up the ingredients, turned on the A/C, and waited for everyone to show up. But avast, no one came. I understood the reason was that no one knew that there was a class at all! So, here's my effort into making sure that people actually know that we're going to be making delicious delicious beer on October 9th at 2:00PM.
Based in the inclement weather and the lack of sign-ups, I have decided to postpone the Guinness clone partial-mash no-sparge session for another week.
As I lay upon my futon, lazily drinking my homebrew that I trekked back home from the hackerspace, I wonder to myself, "What kind of hackers do the beers like?"
Now you can be the one to mistakenly mix your nouns, as soon as I finish the first communal hacker brew!
What beer style do you prefer? Announcing your favorite beer is also very welcome. It will help me to get a better idea of what to make. The "choice" brewing will begin next Sunday during the partial mash class as scheduled.
Just a recap what happened over Sunday's brew class.
I gave a presentation on the basics of homebrewing, and threw in some history about the brewing history in America and in Japan. I'm so glad that it was well received and plan on doing another in the coming weeks covering bottling, and the mini-mash method which will open anyone new to homebrewing to a much greater level of beer customization. That's where it starts to get fun. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again!
