Thursday wasn't quite the pleasurable brewday I had in mind.
The brew went well, it's just that the more enjoyable vision in my head was one of sunshine, peace and quiet from the usual day-to-day, a good deal of drinking and some top music.
What I'd forgotten, was that it was school holidays.
This meant the whole bloody troop were at home. Screaming youngsters, moody teenagers and a tetchy wife. All doing my head in, in some fashion or another, when all I wanted was to have the day to myself.
Anyhow beer was made.
Mashed in at 67C;
Golden wort into the copper;
Chilling and into fermenter #1
Two 5 Gallon fermenters in the fermenting fridge @ 20C
Golden wort, OG 1038
I'm planning to brew again in a couple of weeks. Something a bit stronger and darker. And I'll make sure the house is empty.
