My 4th homebrew turned out to be pretty decent. Outdoor Amber is a pretty sweet but still complex ale that has a distinct but subtle hop character to balance it (if I do say so myself). I gave away several bottles of it and nearly everyone said they loved it which is an improvement over previous homebrew attempts. The yeast didn’t fully convert all the sugar to alcohol so the residual sugar gives a rich caramel flavor. Being my first beer with new equipment in a new location, I can’t complain, and I’m really excited for the next one.
May your 2013 be filled to the brim with golden, delicious, refreshing proof that God wants us to be

We here at Brewing and Beer just bottled up our first beer, Stuck Firm Vanilla Stout, a smooth and light bodied stout with vanilla present through and through. The brewing team consisted of the beautiful Allison, her assistant (me), along with the film crew, Hugo and Donn. We’ve been experiencing some delays getting our first brewing video out, but it will not be our last. We plan on making original video content a major part of Brewing and Beer and we’d like your help in creating something that you’d like to see.
If you have any suggestions, comments, questions or anything please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also looking for help with article writing and video production.
Most importantly, thank you for visiting our site. Prost!
