Brew News

Scott wants to help work on the Homebrew U site. I’ve moved it onto this server, so you can check it out if you want to. Now that its local, and I can do and say whatever I want, things will improve.

Scott and I also each brewed a batch of beer yesterday. He did an IPA, and I tried a Redhook clone recipe. I used Edinburgh yeast from White Labs to give it a full body. I’m quite excited because we’re going to take the two batches camping in April with our First Floor friends.

We made a wort chiller out of 20 feet of 3/8″ coppor tubing for about $18. It worked much better than we anticipated, and it shortened the wort cooling time down by about 90%. Some of the best $18 I’ve ever spent. You can buy one for $60 if you’d rather.
