Happy Brew Year!
With a new year brings new tasks on the farm and one of those things is to actually work on the “house” part of the farmhouse! Caroline and I have decided to redo our living room and make a more “adult” space (something one craves when living with a 3 year old and her toy explosion) It started with the removal of 30 year old wallpaper and followed by 3 coats of plaster…
How to do such things and keep up with my brewing schedule?
Well, I decided to make a Dubbel in honor of the cold weather and plaster the living room while mashing!
So I extended my mash to 2 hours and did a no sparge technique to save on time. I figured 2 hours was enough time to do the second coat of plaster. Turns out to be a good guestimate because it took me roughly and hour and a half which left xtra time to stop and have an espresso next to the fire!
Next installment will be on juggling chainsaws!
Till next time…
