Pictures from the all grain day

Here are some pics.

Not too exciting, but the cooler is full of grain and hot water.

Now for the gear.

I will attach this to the racking cane, to drain and filter the wort.

Chemistry set

Iodine for checking starch conversion; PH strips for checking acidity; thermometer; on the left are containers with hops. And of course, a pint.

The process

Draining the wort into the kettle. Not slow enough.

Observer:

Always watching me.

At the end

The reading.

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.
