ADVENTURE! (in homebrewing)

So here’s my plan for tonight…

That’s right, for the first time ever I’ll be brewing a beer from scratch.  I’m a bit nervous as I’ve only used kits before and this will be my first time running around and steeping the grains and hopping schedules and such.

The recipe is simple enough, but with a few twists due to a few circumstances.  In essence, it’s an all-grain (that’s a beer not made with any Liquid Malt Extract) clone beer of Stone Brewery’s Arrogant Bastard.  Only I’m using a different malted grain and the hopping schedule (which uses a type of hops called Chinook all the way) will get a bit of disruption at the end with some citrusy Cascade hops to compliment the aroma.

As time goes on, I’ll let you know how it turned out!  And how I made it!
