Below is a couple of pictures of last weekend's brew day. Last weekend I started an American Amber. It's a partial grain kit from Brewer's Best. I picked it up at small brew shop in Baldwin, Maryland. It was my first time in that store. Was a little hard to find but the staff were friendly and helpful.
Boiling the wort.
Racked to secondary after a week of fermentation.
Here are a couple of images from today's brew with my friend Wes. He brought over a "Lawnmower" Partial grain kit with coriander and orange peel. It was a special from Midwest Supplies.
Cooling the wort with the low tech method of running cold water in a tub.
The wort brought to 5 gallons (US) OG of 1.045 at 85 degrees.
Wesley's brother built a wort chiller using copper tubing and an aquarium pump. I've commissioned him to build one for me. Hopefully, I won't be using the low tech method of cooling the wort much longer.
