Here’s some visual confirmation on my first ever home brew–alongside a plate which at one time held a delicious BLT. The brew materials came as part of a kit from Northern Brewer in Roseville, MN and were put together properly with help and under the supervision of my friend Paul. Paul is a seasoned veteran when it comes to homemade brew, and I serve as his apprentice in this simultaneously thirst creating and quenching activity. Thanks Paul!
Overall, I am happy with the final product and do believe it conforms to the description of a cream ale (or lawnmower beer) which came with the kit. Here’s a description for anyone who’s interested: A light, clean fermenting ale modeled after the “cream lagers” of the northeast United states. Low in gravity, long in flavor, this beer is a pale thirst-quencher, great for brewing and enjoying in the summertime.
Next brew on the list is an IPA (and then maybe some root beer for Christmas!). Stay tuned.
