Twitter brewing?

Today is the first time I’ve ever been tempted to have a twitter account.  Not that anyone would read my tweets.  I mean, how many read this post?  One person, it appears

Nevertheless, today I feel like chronicling my day, blow by blow (for which Twitter would be good).  Because today is my first real all grain day.  I say this, even though I have yet to make a proper mash tun.  I’m using a modification that some diehards might even like.  Basically, I’ve created a false bottom to my cooler without messing with the spigot (my cooler doesn’t have one) by connecting a regular stainless steel mesh tube (acting as a filter) to 3/8″ plastic tubing, which I’ll use to siphon off the wort into the brew kettle.

I’ll take pictures later.

I did not brew yesterday; I was really dragging my butt for half the day, then I just bottled my ESB (which tastes pretty good so far).  I also drank a bottle of my Original Bitter, the one that I had messed up when I primed it (too much priming sugar).  It was perfectly carbonated.

More later.


About danmalleck

Medical historian and jack-of-all-trades curmudgeon. I tend to ramble about politics, social incivility, and our self-centred culture more interested in buying the next cool ringtone or LED TV than actively engaging in the sorts of discussions and issues that matter. The more opportunity we have to buy more stuff, the less concern there is, it seems, in politics, social justice and let's face it, basic human decency, unless those things actually can save us money or get us more things to show how awesome we are through displaying our material wealth. And I like to brew beer, make cheese, and put food in jars.
