|Birth of a Spontaneous Fermentation
Came home from work tonight and finally got started on a brew that I have been trying to fit into the schedule. Honestly this is the easiest brew session I've actually ever done. 2 Gallons of water, 2 pounds of Briess Dried Bavarian Malt extract and a few hop cones. About 30 minutes later called that enough of a boil. Right now it's about 38 degrees out the kettle is sitting on top of my shed cooling. I plan on leaving it until the morning or at least until late tonight before racking into a fermenter. I only wanted to mess with a gallon or so, who knows what might find its way into the kettle and why waste ingredients for a 5 gallon batch. If this proves successful I can use this beer to pitch a full volume batch, and propagate some local bugs.
Will come back and update as soon as I can, I'll be journaling as much of this fermentation as I can.
