Making Beer for the Holidays

Things have been really hectic for me ever since getting back from visiting Adam in El Salvador. I have been coordinating Distance Learning Workshops and trying to get caught up on all my online courses. With that said…I did find time last night to brew 5 Gallons of Red Ale for the Christmas season.  I have not brewed beer in awhile and it was fun.  Andei didn’t like the smell of the wort as I was boiling it but did get a kick out of me making beer in the kitchen.  Brewing beer is always fun and relaxing.  Anyone can do it – you just have to follow directions carefully and keep everything sanitary.  Early next week I’ll bottle it and then the hard part is waiting 25-30 days for it to be ready to drink.  cheers!
