Another Weekday Brew

bitterDid another weekday brew last Thursday and once again finished up before 9PM.

I was asked how I manage to do this. Easy, weigh out your recipe prior to brew day, mill your grain the night before or that day, mash in at lunch (this shouldn’t take you long), go back to work, get home and start your first runnings. Works for me…
