Hearfield Brewers

We are beer makers!
Alan had been talking about home brew for a while and then he finally bought a kit. He wanted to make some in time for his birthday and it takes 3 months for the beer to 'cure'.

Taking careful records

pouring the malt

testing to see if it's ready to bottle!
30 bottles on the bench!

We have made 3 batches now, dropping the yeast, listening to it ferment and stinking up the kitchen and taking up space on the bench, and then bottling in the evening about a week or a week and a half later. A bit of fun.
We've even tasted it. Not bad!
Now we just need to look at getting some labels...
