Today is a beautiful day in Sonoma County. I’ve been waiting to do my second brew and today is just perfect.
I got my new propane burner and have been itching to give it a go. I had such a great brew from my first kit from The Beverage People but wanted a bigger hop character than their IPA kit delivered. So I got another kit and got some extra Simcoe hops. This batch got an extra 1/2 oz of these hops at 3o minutes into the boil. It will get an extra dose at secondary fermentation in about a week.
Here’s some pics of the endeavor.
I love the way brewing beer smells…. Like a fresh loaf of bread in the oven!

Here’s to another great Brew. Happy Spring All

10 Days of bottle conditioning and they should be ready for consumption, I can’t wait!
