I wake up in the back bedroom. It is traquil in here.
I open the curtains to see a nicer day.
Yep it was windy yesterday.
But look at that. My daffodils have already started coming out.
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.
And a bit latter there is a knock at the door.
So I decide to take it easy and brew the beer.
The most important step, make sterilising solution and sterilise everything.
Then was make the mash in the big pot. I can see we really need two big pots like it says in the instructions!
And then get it to temperature.
Stirrer every ten minutes and
check the temperature.
Keep checking the temperature.
Then repeat after ten minutes.
And again. Now you may think this is easy. So to make it harder
I did this at the same time.
Rasie the temperature to 77 deg C. Add more liquid and next make the wort.
Put into second container through sieve.
Repeat and and add more water. Note bigger sieve needed.
I take it the mash is good for the garden?
Add hopps and chestnuts and raise to the boil but not quiet.
This is using rather a lot of gas,
Leave just under the boil for 60 mintues
Constaintly watch the temperature
and burn more gas.
burn more gas, my house smells like Woverhampton!
well its time for the last hopps to be added.
Its turned the right colour
And I’m making a right mess in the living room
Slate make great lintals!
I vacuum the area up.
And the chimney including the area on the left was just filled with sand.
Look the real floor!
I’m not sure about that lintel though!
In a way it looks quiet nice!
right now time to get it down to 21 deg C
So in the bath with cold water.
Once cool, I filtered it twice and here it needs to live for 3 days to bubble away. Erm look at all the sediment!
And with that I turn the PS4 off that I never played anyway and
go to my parents for tea!
The cat comes for a cuddle for a while and then
decides she would rather stare into the darkness.
I wander onto the Iidle website. Look at that, when you don’t want one they have them!
Back at home the brew is bubling away stronger than ever!
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!
I feel warmer already. And with that I start a Fallout 4 broadcast for a while.
After an hour I end it. And you know what. I play so much better afterwards for another hour!
