I made a thing while i was in the garage, the thinking was for somewhere to put all my brewing books in the garage, It looked a lot better than this in my head!:

Almost finished running off from the copper to the FV, I was using the Immersion Cooler today:

I forgot to that a hydro shot, though in any case I hit the nail on the head… if I hadn’t started trying to be creative with wood it would have been a easy day! 😀

*21st Jun ’12 – Dry hopped today at 20°c with about 200g of Blitzed up hops, the food processor didn’t like it! I’ll drop the temp tomorrow once I’ve double checked the gravity is steady at 1013.

*30th Jun ’12 – chilling to 4c for a couple of days before bottling to drop some hop debris out. Tastes bloody good, just what I was after 🙂

*Bottled 3rd Jul ’12 with 78g white sugar, tastes pretty good bit sharper with stirring up the hops which retained about 3-4 litres of perfectly good beer!! I’ll make sure I blitz them for longer in the food processor next time so hopefully they will settle out to a thinner layer of mush rather than loads of still whole hops!

*7th Jul ’12 – Early taster, while out with the Leeds Homebrewers at Ilkley Brewery, Bloody fantastic 🙂 very pleased just need a little more time to carbonate up properly 🙂

*15th Jul ’12 – Tastes blooming good 🙂
