Sorry for coming in late. We started brewing beer earlier this year, and it's a blast. Beer's easy and fun, if you like cooking and can maintain some basic cleanliness.
It being south Florida, we're kinda tempting fate by brewing beer in the summer. Thankfully the A/C and a wet t-shirt keeps fermentation between 70-75F.
Before the year's done, we'll have made six batches of beer:
- A generic red ale, from a kit.
- "Perl 5 Porter" (really a stout), shared at YAPC::NA.
- A Belgian-style ale. Our first (thankfully only) infected batch. The infection just made it taste more Belgian. :)
- A bitter (just becoming drinkable).
- A pumpkin(g) ale (going into secondary tomorrow).
- "Perl 5 Porter" version 2 (should start next week).
Even bad homebrew tastes better than good storebought.
