If you’re a home brewer you know that homebrewing and craft beer tend to permeate and enhance other areas of your life all while helping you explore your inner creativity. As such, for this week’s Homebrew Wednesday I share footage from my HIBC Barleywine 2014 brew day (recipe below), finishing gluing the beer caps onto my keezer lid, and a preview of an upcoming episode of The Brewed Palate In The Kitchen i.e. how I’m currently expressing my inner creativity through my passion for homebrewing and craft beer. Cheers!

A. Adjust mash ph for better starch / sugar conversions: I added Calcium Chloride to lower my mash ph. After getting confused by John Palmer’s water calculator I ended up just adding in a tsp at a time until my ph was 5.34. Because ph is most accurate at room temperature I used this online ph corrector to find out the actual ph.
B. Discussion about my yeast starter and footage of my hop additions.
C. We have lift off! i.e. an update on the start of fermentation.
2. Adding the last 8 caps to my keezer lid
A. Using Gorilla super glue to secure the caps to the lid.
B. Plans for pouring clear epoxy over the caps.
3. A quick preview of the next episode of The Brewed Palate In The Kitchen
