Wow, what a BLUSTERY birthday brew! Here are the action shots:
The updated label to indicate the windy day.
Mashing in and heating sparge water in the garage behind one closed garage door and two others open. This kept out the wind some and the flame didn't blow out.
Mashing out with the rain in the background.
One full boil kettle!
5.5 ounces of hops!
The boil kettle after all the wort was drained off.
The new fermenter!
