Fun With Yeast

16 September 2012

Most of the time I do astrophysics work, but occasionally I dabble in a bit of biochemistry. Over the weekend a friend of mine and I cooked up a batch of full mash homebrew. Brewing from raw grains rather than a “mix” can be a a lot of work, so my friend and I worked together on a large batch in order to split the winnings.

Our batch is fermenting now, so in a few weeks we should have a nice weizenbock for the Winter months.
