Is It Beer Yet? - Yes, It Is!

Oh, I'm a little behind documenting our beer making experiment but I'm happy to say the first batch is successfully done! First we had to add a little more sugar & get the beer into bottles.
Is It Beer Yet? Is It Beer Yet?
       Sanitizing the bottles         Moving the beer to the bottling bucket & adding melted sugar
Is It Beer Yet? Is It Beer Yet?
            Filling the bottles                           Sediment
Is It Beer Yet? Is It Beer Yet?
                Capping                  Ready to sit for two or more weeks to carbonate
It's Beer
Enjoying the fruits of his labor. It worked & it's really beer. It is pretty much exactly like we thought it would be so, the kit was pretty spot on. It's the hoppy sort of beer Matt really likes though I find a little too hoppy. Next we are making a raspberry beer for me.

So fun! Quite a number of our friends are brewing beer these days. One, in particular, has gotten to the point where he's actually making up his own recipes. Pretty exciting! Glad you guys met with success!!

So, will you make a Raspberry Lambic next time?

I just never know what I am going to come across on everyone's blogs. How fun! Beer making. This will be so interesting. If you want to take a look, I slaved over the weekend on a project of my own - macarons!

a) Seriously, is Matt not adorable? :) Look how happy he looks in that last picture!
b) I loves me some hops. Perhaps it's time to invite myself over for knitting again!!
