Tropical stout hooked up, ready for fermentation next to strong ale. Can’t wait to share w/ Dad.
By the boil, I had righted the early problems. Color and hot break looked good to me.
That was a challenging brew day. Stuck mash, wonky pH meter. Managed to overcome, beer tasted great going into fermenter.
Always start brew day with the finest ingredients. @marylandmalt
Making a tropical stout today inspired by fond memories traveling the Caribbean with my dad when I was younger.
Love my new Riptide pump, performed exactly as advertised.
A reward for making it to the boil: previous brew, a best bitter with Maryland rye.
3 kinds of hops for the jacket as a happy yeast starter looks on.
Love the color on this batch.
A productive morning. Just starting the boil.
