Time to Brew
Last week end I fired up the brew kettle and then also I did a batch today. For today's batch I decided to do the grains on the kitchen stove before moving the brew outside for the boil. That worked well, and I may continue to work with that process in the future.

7 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs. Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
5.5 - 6.0 Gallons of Water
1.5 ounces of Challenger Hops (10.1%) Boiling
0.5 ounce of Fuggles Plugs Hops (4.0%) Finishing
Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity (Last weeks batch): 1.054
Specific Gravity (Today's batch): 1.052

Racked last weeks batch and added a Fuggles plug.

Dec 23 Note: Last week I bottled the first batch and then racked the second batch and fed it a fuggles plug. Today I bottled the second batch as well.
