Update 1

Pouring the wort from the mash tun.

Sitting with Andrew on his back porch, waiting for 5 gallons of water to reach a boil.  It is a gorgeous day to make beer!  We’ve got things sanitized, the grain is milled, excitement in the air, and Estephie just joined us with a bottle of Charleville Half Wit Wheat.

Half hour later: the grain is in the mash tun.  We are now making wort, which is beer without the yeast in it yet.  For this step, we’re having Boulevard’s Rye on Rye.  More to come!
