No, I'm not going to brew in a fire pit or chew and spit grain....
But the broken hydrometer thread got me thinking....I have been brewing so long, that I think that I will try brewing a batch of beer without measuring anything. No scales, thermometers, graduated cylinders, hydrometers, clocks.....nothing.
I will eyeball the amount of mash water. Eyeball the amount of grain. Heat the water until it gets that gassy look that means its at strike temperature. Mash in and not look and my watch. Mash out. Boil. Eyeball my hop additions. Chill till the wort feels cool. Add some yeast slurry and ferment.
Just to say that I can do. I bet I can brew some pretty tasty beer, brewing like a caveman.
What do you think?
