Brew Tastings - DIY Equipment - Vocabulary
Tastings included George’s American Pale Ale and Mary’s Ginger Cider, our President’s Watermelon Gueuze, Ryan’s two Red Ales, and my own Whiskey Barrel Stout, Midnight Delight!
Joe demonstrated his do-it-yourself project for stirring up his yeast hydration solution. He used a small job box to house a computer exhaust fan with a couple of earth magnets attached, placed a flask on top of the box, dropped in a small magnetic capsule, turned it on, and voila!
Some vocabulary used during the meeting; attenuation, cold crash, hop schedule, and pellicle (https://beerandbrewing.com/what-is-a-pellicle/). These are just a few of the terms and words you’ll learn along the way to becoming a craft brewer! Explore and learn.
