Sunday was Brew Day

Sunday, was a day of brewing. It was also the day that I embarked on my initial all grain brewing experience. With the help of my friends Wes and Nick, we managed to successfully brew 5 gallons of Red Ale from all grain and 5 gallons of Red Ale from a Brewer's Best kit. The extract kit was Nick's. He's just learning to brew.

Below are some images from the brew day.

These are the grains prior to the mash.

Coolers converted into a mash tun with false bottom and a lautering tank.

Wes's new brew kettle.

The boil.

Bread made with the spent grains. Mmm mm
