First All-Grain brew! Big Red & Little Red Monsters!

Today was my first All Grain brew. Also the first time I used whole leaf hops for the entire brew. AND, this time, I am making two beers at once! A big red beer and a littler red beer. Dubbed The Big Red Monster and the Little Red Monster....

Whole hops....straight from the grower near Ithaca, NY

Now that's a lot a grain. 18 1/2 pounds!

Dumping the grains into the mash tun! Woo Hoo!

Draining the malty goodness into the brew pot.

Bobbing for hops!

Two brewpots going at once!

Chillin' it down.
