Porter Brew Lesson

image

A small group gathered in East Islip on Sunday at the home of Long Island Beer & Malt Enthusiast (LIBME) member, long-time Dead Head and the creative genius behind “Peanut Butt-Head and Jelly…and, uh huh huh, Beavis, too” Todd Long for an informative (and introductory for many, including Super Neat) lesson in homebrewing.

Long demonstrated, fielded questions and assisted us in brewing two separate porter batches?one using malt extract, the other all-grain?that will ultimately be served as part of LIBME’s showing at Starfish Junction’s Spring Craft Beer Festival this March (03/26/11) at Nassau Coliseum.

The band of brewers and aspiring apprentices are set to reconvene in about two weeks for secondary fermentation.
