Hop Monster ~ our latest brew

We've started our next batch of beer... which I've dubbed Hop Monster. This is the most complicated recipe we've tried so far ~ a super hoppy ale using four types of hops and liquid yeast. A few photos of the brew in the works...

Measuring the Ingredients





Craig stirs the wort sitting in an ice bath (with Filly's help of course)


This is the first time we are using a "parka" for the glass carboy. It's supposed to help regulate the temperature/light as well as provide handles for moving. On the right you can see yeast bubbling away (it's alive!)

Hey Guys.....remember this time YOU own the ceiling!
Seriously though, this looks like a very well thought out batch. Good luck and save us a taste.

Yep, we had a big lesson learned in CT and I don't think its a mistake that will ever happen again (knock on wood)

The parka worked really well in keeping the temperature fairly constant as well as keeping out the light.
