The Taste of Homemade (homebrew)
Found the above bad boy hiding in a cool, moist, dark corner. I brewed up a Pale Ale of sorts almost 6 months ago. Very simple recipe, all grain (pale malt) and a shit load of Kent Golding hops. I won't bore you with the details of the brew, but it turned out pretty good. Most of it got drunk a while ago, but I found this half gal. hiding in a cabinet, somehow forgotten. I threw the growler in the fridge and enjoyed a couple glasses tonight.
I think this particular brew improved with age. The head seemed better, and there was a bit more complexity to the flavor. For some reason it reminded me a little of Hoegaarden.
Anyhow, any other local home brewers out there? If so, I will get a little more informational with my home brew posts. I know how boring brewing instructions are for those who aren't indoctrinated into the craft.
