Brew Day

This is the Breakfast Stout kit from Northern Brewer. It arrived a few weeks ago, but since we’ve been busy with Honey Christmas Porters and Cream Ales, I didn’t have a chance to get it started until yesterday.

Extract kits are like making a large, somewhat involved cup of tea. Steeping oats and coffee, adding extracts, stirring in some hops and making sure it doesn’t boil over. Finally,  getting your husband to help you pitch the yeast and move it into primary fermentation. Where it is happily bubbling away in our laundry room next to a super hopped RyePA.
