In the meantime, I decided to try my hand at beermaking. I ordered the malt and hops from Fallbright. I received a hopped malt concentrate and brewer's yeast packet from an Australian company called Coopers. The resulting beer should be an ale.
I mixed up the ingredients with 2 liters of boiling water in a large pot.
I siphoned the boiled mixture into a carboy and added another 15-16 liters of water.
Fermentation underway, with foam pouring out of the airlock. Fermentation takes place at 72 degrees F.Good thing this is happening in the basement. I ordered 48 - 12 ounce bottles, caps and a bottle capper. If the beer tastes good next week, I'll bottle it and give it away.
