I've mentioned before that I homebrew beer periodically. The last batch got a bit too excited.
Tadpole's been doing her own "brewing" too.
Here, she's boiling the wort, with my last batch in the background. This (I've been informed) is vanilla beer.
Beer starts out as wort (or beans) in a carboy.
After putting the beer in a carboy, you need to add an airlock.
It's important to syphon out some beer in order to weigh the original and final gravity
But first you have to separate out the yellowish crud at the bottom.
You need to get the finished product into a bottle.
Cap the bottle, of course.
And eventually, you get to drink the finished product!
