Brewing slowly

This page started out as a journal in a closed forum for the Canberra Brewers. I have transferred to here because other people wanted to see what I have been doing. What is that?

Firstly, I am working to replicate a recipe that my great great grandfather seems to have had in the mid 19th century, in Ballarat. In order to do that I had to learn how to brew. I have also learned how to grow hops and barley. To malt barley and a lot of biochemistry along the way.

More posts coming soon. When I complete them
