Beer 101

Micah is a certified beer maker. Well, more like – he took a class and learned all the in’s and out’s of real beer making and came home with this awesome kit.

Apparently he came home with a high-top hair cut too.

He purchased a Groupon for a beer making class and finally got around to taking it. The class was through Mountain Home Brew in Kirkland. It was a 3 hour class where the students received detailed instruction on how to correctly brew beer.

Now, you might recall that Micah has been doing a bit of home brewing via his Mr. Beer kit. And there have been some pretty tasty results from his efforts. But apparently, that’s not real beer making. And if you tell real beer makers about your Mr. Beer kit – just wait for the eye rolls.

Micah did score this pretty sweet kit – complete with a bunch of supplies and equipment that I have no idea their specific purpose. But once he finishes using up all his Mr. Beer supplies, he’ll try a bit of beer making 100% from scratch. It’ll be interesting to see if there’s really a difference in taste.

Right now, Micah is brewing up a batch of Mr. Beer Irish Stout – it should be ready just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Did someone say…black and tans? Smile
