My husband has been busy the last few weeks brewing a homemade, imperial blond ale. I had absolutely no idea what went into brewing beer (and still kinda don't). But I do know it takes weeks before the beer is ready to drink...and there's lots of sanitizing and measuring things with contraptions that are reminiscent of high school chemistry class and siphoning and straining (the beer, not the brain...well, maybe a bit of both). Who knew so much went into a bottle of beer?
This first batch is finally finished, and he's now able to reap the rewards of all his hard work. The consensus is 4-1/2 out of 5 stars. Next up: a home brew said to rival Dogfish Head's 90 minute IPA. (Which I'm told is a big deal since Dogfish Head is no longer available in our area, and that beer is "awesome") We'll keep you posted.
