Brewing a Warhawk Wheat and Enjoying a Prime Rib

Preparing to brew the wheat.

Wort transfer.
Quality check.

Fermenters 1 and 2 have an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager fementing in them. Now I've brewed up a Warhawk Wheat and it's fermenting in 3.

A lot of times when transferring the wort from the mash tun to the brew kettle, it get's stuck with a wheat beer because the particulates are
so small. Today I alternated grain types when mashing in. It seemed to help and the transfer didn't get "stuck."

Enjoyed some India Pale Ale and a prime rib. It's GREAT to be the brewmaster!

Second Time Brewing an India Pale Ale

The India Pale Ale I brewed a few months ago was so popular, I'm already brewing another batch. I'm glad you've enjoyed it so much.

Here are some pictures from the day in the brewhouse. Two home brewers, a father and son team, happened to be in the restaurant and visited the brewhouse. Thanks for stopping by Bob, and Bobbie, glad you enjoy the beer!
