The Tanaka home brew

Micah and I are taking our first stab at brewing our own beer.  Let me clarify by saying, we are taking our first stab at brewing beer via the Mr. Beer Home Brew Kit I bought him way back for his birthday in January.  It might not involve picking your own hops, and creating the perfect IPA recipe, but it still counts. Smile

The beer kit has a number of steps, but it’s pretty straightforward and easy.  And it doesn’t take much time to make (but about 3 weeks to sit and ferment before consuming).  The flavor mixes that come with the kit make it very very easy.  Boil some water, stir in some of this and some of that, add some water, some yeast.  Shake it around…and let your mini-keg chill out.

Stir, stir, stir.

Pour, pour, pour.

Add yeast. Shirt optional.

And then let your keg veg out for a bit.

Easy right?  After one week in the keg, we’ll pour it into bottles, and then let it wait a couple more weeks.

I’ll have to provide an update to let you know how it tastes.  Who wants a sample of our Tanaka brew?!

    Micah “shirts optional” T**aka would go to work without a shirt if he could.
