I have always loved the process of brewing. Love being up at the crack of dawn on a crisp morning just as the sun is coming up over the mountains with a cup of coffee in my hand and the roar of the burner heating up my strike water. I love the smell of the wort as it comes to a boil and especially after the first hop addition.+1 this exactly how I feel.
But I especially love the feeling of satisfaction after a long successful brewday as you put the wort away in the fermentor safe and sound, clean up and pitch yeast. It's that satisfied feeling of accomplishment I have always really loved, kind of like sitting down on the lawnchair with a glass of lemonade after mowing the lawn. For me it is a very deep feeling of accomplishment. Especially when I just now that one is going to turn out just right.
The AHA website, the one we are on.Made this this afternoon and it wasn't until I got completely done that I realized I left out the wheat, dammit. Also it called for dark candi sugar so I found a website that told how to make your own, pretty cool and cheaper than buying it.What's the website? Thanks.
This is how I have done it for years.I'd rather have a long conversation about spelling conventions and the etymological roots of words than deal with a siphon. I was mightily pleased with myself when I figured out I could start them with pressure, rather than fill and drain into a glass.It is much easier to simply suck start the siphon. I can usually use pressure, but sometimes I need to start it manually. I have a ~1 foot piece of tubing that fits snugly over the racking tubing - sanitize everything, suck on the end to start the siphon, pull off the extra bit of tubing, and rack away.
