Pre-Blast: Learn To Brew day at Lab Rat’s



After the convergence, Helix and I will be making a beer together at the Ratskeller.  I have no other plans, and minimal beer, but I have a grill and a grocery store nearby.  There will be at least one set of corn hole, possibly the unveiling of another…depending on if Ronaldo works as fast as he runs.

All are welcome, ’cause my wife is out of town!  I will give the downstairs bathroom a once over in case she finds out about this.

We will be kicking off by meeting at Original Gravity (in Lakeside, by Lewis Ginter) at 10:00 a.m. to gather ingredients.  We will then mosey over to my house to start the brew day.  Weather is going to be gorgeous!  Swing by for a minute or the afternoon.

  1. Wheelbarrow is a HC

    Lab Rat – any experience with transporting carboys? I could bring my extract setup and have a second brew going, but I don’t know about transporting it home afterwards…

  2. It’ll be fine! The agitation will actually help O2 levels for the yeast during growth phase. Absolutely bring your gear.
