My First Home Brew Attempt

January 25, 2011

Here is my first foray into home brewing thanks to Mr. Beer.

They say you’re supposed to start out with the basic pale ale that comes with a Mr. Beer starter kit. However, I wanted to go big and have something good ready for St. Patty’s Day so my first brew was an Irish Red Ale.

Everything’s ready:

The ingredients:

Pitching the yeast:

The keg ready to ferment:

And the finished product 6 weeks later, Faisca’s Famous Leitrim’s Irish Red:

Not bad for a first try.

I’ll go into a more detailed description of the entire process of brewing with a Mr. Beer kit in a future post. It’s amazing what you can do with this little sucker.
