To gain some experience brewing beer, we have a kit from the Brooklyn Brewshop – this will make a US gallon of Bruxelles Blonde, a light Belgian-style beer. It is a complex process, keeping the mash at the optimum temperature and then sparging and boiling, and then rapidly cooling to prepare for fermentation. There is a lot to go wrong. Once we have more practice, hopefully we can then move on to more efficient quantities.
The beer is currently fermenting, so we will write again when we’re ready to bottle.
