Weekday Brewday

MarzenMy band had a gig Saturday night, and we had a practice Friday evening. So I decided to brew during the week last week as I knew that weekend brewing was going to be out of the question and I had yeast ready to go.

Anyways, I came up with this Marzen (ish) recipe. I mashed in during my lunch break from work and started the first runnings as soon as I got home. I wasn’t rushed and it was all done around 9PM. The wort tasted great, so I am looking forward to some of this around Christmas.
