Part 3b of the #PeachWeisseChronicles: it’s alive. It’s....ALIVE!
Part 3a of the #PeachWeisseChronicles: the airlock is already bubbling! Actually sounds like tiny little farts lol.
One thing I love about homebrewing is that my mom's house uses well water, so even if someone got the same recipe and mimicked my boil exactly, there would still be subtle differences in the beer. Totally unique!
Part 3 of the #PeachWeisseChronicles:
The hops are Czech Saaz pellets grown, of course, in the Yakima Valley of Washington, USA. Hopped at -30, -15, and -5 mins to avoid getting overly bitter flavors that might clash with the peaches later.
After cooling the wort to an acceptable temp, I poured it into the fermenter and added water to make five gallons, and dropped those hungry little friends right on top! The yeast is a dry-packed Belgian yeast; I don't know the exact strain. #beer #homebrew
Part 2 of the #PeachWeisseChronicles: finally took the leap to get in the kitchen and brew some dang beer! The specialty grain included in this kit from #SchoolhouseBeerAndBrewing in #MariettaGA is Acid Malt, as well as some Bavarian and Pilsner wheat extracts. The boil was a few hours long and I did a little more sanitizing than I needed to, but whatever.
I also strained the peaches, so they can get added to the wort in a few days... and got a beautiful peach-infused vodka out of the deal.
Part 1 of the #PeachWeisseChronicles: The peaches.
I’m going to add them to my wort just after primary fermentation gets going to give my little friends something else to chew on.
