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.
