Thanks to Brooklyn Brew Shop, I attempted my first batch of home brew a few weeks ago. The beer will be ready later this week, so I can’t say that I didn’t completely fuck it up, but it was fun nonetheless. The folks over at BBS sell their wares at the Brooklyn Flea, and answer any email questions you may have while you are brewing quite promptly! I’m almost ready to start my next batch, an Irish red ale. Here are some pics from the first, though.

Siphoning the beer into a pot.

Siphoning is hard. And messy.

Final step: bottling. Now, we wait.
