I'm eager to get started on a new batch of Humble B but there are some technical issues in the way. As I want to advance in the field of brewing I decided to make things harder for myself.
I bought large bag of wheat and malt grain to use with the 1kg jar of Karri honey. There are a few issues with this. The first is that I don't have a mill with which to mill this grain. The second is that I lack the set up to do a non-catastrophic mash and lauter.
Thankfully a co-worker of mine owns a mill that he says I'm welcome to borrow as for the lautering equipment however I'll need to find someone with one of those eskies with the pouring tap hole at the bottom that I can borrow.
As I'm not using a kit there's a lot more for me to screw up. So here's the process as I understand it:
I should really get on with this. It should be pretty tasty and the sugar content would indicate I could get a really good buzz on from this. Given the increased effort I'm going to give it a new name like "Humbler B" or something. Actually I'll just settle on Humbler B right now.
