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.
TFW you realize, late a night, too late before brew day, that you forgot an ingredient with no time left to procure it.
Last step: enjoy. Done except for cleaning the fermenter.
I should start a book club.
