Last night I tried some expensive eye cream, the rash is spectacular isn’t it?

Sunday is the only day cars can park in front of my building.

This is the reigning queen. She gave me one chance to take her picture.

Beer gets siphoned into this bucket, then it is put into the bottles.

With a spigot, unfortunately this one was leaking, I think a part was missing? Not sure but we coped.

This is the priming sugar mixture before boiling. After boiling it is put in the bucket before the beer is put in.

Sanitizing bottles.

And here they are, ready to be filled.

This is a wort chiller. When we brewed we had to put the beer in an ice bath, now Rose uses this, which she says in super duper fantastic and so much easier.

This is the carboy with the brown ale in it, originally “Caribou Slobber”, I dubbed it “Bronze Medal Brown Ale” 😉

This is the siphon to transfer the beer to the bucket, there is tubing that is attached to this.

If your tubing comes out of the bucket you end up standing in beer which leads to a condition known as ‘beer feet’. I wonder if this ever happened to Sam Adams.

Caps are sanitized,

And this nifty tool squeezes the caps onto the bottles.

We have beer!

20140224-104823.jpg

I had to carry mine up these stairs

And here they are, my sixteen bottles safe and sound. Ready for consumption in 2 weeks.
