Subject: Helpful Hints on Making Beer

I would strongly advise you to NOT break your foot on Sunday, if your
schedule calls for racking the stuff on Monday. It is not practical
to muscle around a carboy (empty, much less full of beer!) if you are
on crutches.

This past week-end, I was finally able to walk usefully without the
crutches, though moving a carboy full of beer seemed out of the
question. I racked (primary fermentation to secondary was the
original plan) into a second plastic bucket. The stuff should still
be quite fine.

(to be) Really Incredible Ale may be made by mashing together all of
5-7# pale malt
3# crystal malt
2# wheat
and, at boiling time, adding
2 oz northern brewer (1 1/2 hour, the entire boil period)
1 oz halertau (1/2 hour)
1/2 oz cascades (the first harvest from my hops vines, 15 mins)

Started on Saturday, foot broken on Sunday. Not transferred to
secondary ferment, therefore, until Saturday -- a week in primary!

More reports later. I think that it'll be good stuff; the wheat
helps to make a beer very suitable to the warm climate. This has
been a hot summer; it has topped 100 (measured in the shade at the
back of the house) several times.

Amusingly enough, the summer intern doesn't care to drink alcohol.
No problem, of course \(em I am happy to take up any slack.
