Hell Birthday Girl

IMG_20160207_091223

I wake up in the back bedroom. It is traquil in here.

IMG_20160207_093822

I open the curtains to see a nicer day.

IMG_20160207_093839

Yep it was windy yesterday.

IMG_20160207_093853

But look at that. My daffodils have already started coming out.

IMG_20160207_103616

I make me some breakfast and catch up with some facebook time. So much has happened since I was last on. Ohh it is Friends Day, now thay is a nice video. It was nice to get time chatter away.to Hell Birthday Girl.

I look at the fire place. What should I not do today. Afterall I was going to rest and play Fallout 4. I know the world could do with another broadcast be me.

I win a Scart multi adaptor and then get a message saying they are going to Hednesford, could they deliever it instead of posting.

IMG_20160207_114502

And a bit latter there is a knock at the door.

IMG_20160207_121920

So I decide to take it easy and brew the beer.

IMG_20160207_121924

The most important step, make sterilising solution and sterilise everything.

IMG_20160207_122644

Then was make the mash in the big pot. I can see we really need two big pots like it says in the instructions!

IMG_20160207_122931

And then get it to temperature.

IMG_20160207_122644

Stirrer every ten minutes and

IMG_20160207_122923

check the temperature.

IMG_20160207_122931

Keep checking the temperature.

IMG_20160207_123437

Then repeat after ten minutes.

IMG_20160207_124023

And again. Now you may think this is easy. So to make it harder

IMG_20160207_130747

I did this at the same time.

IMG_20160207_134451

Rasie the temperature to 77 deg C. Add more liquid and next make the wort.

IMG_20160207_140522

Put into second container through sieve.

IMG_20160207_140541

Repeat and and add more water. Note bigger sieve needed.

IMG_20160207_141602

I take it the mash is good for the garden?

IMG_20160207_141703

Add hopps and chestnuts and raise to the boil but not quiet.

IMG_20160207_142301

This is using rather a lot of gas,

IMG_20160207_142306

Leave just under the boil for 60 mintues

IMG_20160207_142312

Constaintly watch the temperature

IMG_20160207_143112

Watch

IMG_20160207_143120

watch, watch

IMG_20160207_143219

and burn more gas.

IMG_20160207_141703

stir

IMG_20160207_142301

watch, stir

IMG_20160207_142306

watch, stir

IMG_20160207_142312

watch

IMG_20160207_143112

stir

IMG_20160207_143120

watch

IMG_20160207_143219

burn more gas, my house smells like Woverhampton!

IMG_20160207_143340

well its time for the last hopps to be added.

IMG_20160207_143353

Its turned the right colour

IMG_20160207_143428

And I’m making a right mess in the living room

IMG_20160207_143441

Slate make great lintals!

IMG_20160207_154409

I vacuum the area up.

IMG_20160207_154416

And the chimney including the area on the left was just filled with sand.

IMG_20160207_154422

Look the real floor!

IMG_20160207_154458

I’m not sure about that lintel though!

IMG_20160207_155113

In a way it looks quiet nice!

IMG_20160207_155206

right now time to get it down to 21 deg C

IMG_20160207_155406

So in the bath with cold water.

IMG_20160207_155809

And watch.

IMG_20160207_164425

Once cool, I filtered it twice and here it needs to live for 3 days to bubble away. Erm look at all the sediment!

IMG_20160207_164452

And with that I turn the PS4 off that I never played anyway and

IMG_20160207_174654

go to my parents for tea!

IMG_20160207_192804

The cat comes for a cuddle for a while and then

IMG_20160207_200032

decides she would rather stare into the darkness.

Screenshot_20160207-194237

I wander onto the Iidle website. Look at that, when you don’t want one they have them!

IMG_20160207_204550

Back at home the brew is bubling away stronger than ever!

IMG_20160207_211323

I tuen the fire glow on and think why is the flame effect not working. So I take the fire apart. And find out its not working becuase of the way it works. It works off convection of heat from the bulb, which spins the spinner. Until the bulb has warmed up the effect doesn’t happen. And whilst I’m inside a dust and vac it out. The effect is now awsome!

IMG_20160207_205858

I feel warmer already. And with that I start a Fallout 4 broadcast for a while.

IMG_20160208_001013

 

After an hour I end it. And you know what. I play so much better afterwards for another hour!
