|Enjoying a home brewed Citrus Weiss while I write this blog.|
Without context on the recipe, I assumed it was a tried and true recipe for a delicious beverage; something my wife would definitely like to try. So I logged on to Midwest Supplies on Labor Day and placed my order, knowing I'd have my ingredients on Friday (today) and the universe would be well. Until Torri posted the following message to his blog on Thursday:
Here is the final product, the Hogsmedge Butterbeer. The labels turned out nicely - the beer…. well it could have been better. The flavours did not blend as well as concieved, and the Root-beer notes ended up powering most of the drink (it was commented as well that there were toothpaste notes somewhere in there).
|The raw ingredients, sans the yeast and hops.|
Although I'm a little concerned that I'm going to end up with another flub, I'm happy to be brewing up another batch of something and I certainly won't get any better if I stick with recipes and kits. In the words of Linguini, "lets do this thing!"
