The Chronicles of Brewing, Part Three - El Finito!

Entry #4, Wednesday, July 18, 2007

This my friends is a bitter beer face.

Yup, my first batch of homebrew was a miserable failure. It looked good, had a nice head, but didn't smell right. And the taste? Sour? You don't know the half of it. Simply stated, this isn't beer I'd let my dog drink.

But I'm not going to let that deter me. I've ordered up a fresh batch of ingredients (I'm hoping the fact that this sucker sat around for 3 years was the culprit) and I'll give it the ole college try one more time. If that fails, well... like many things in life - I tried, I failed, I learned from my mistakes and moved on.

Thankfully the world's supply of beer does not rest on my shoulders.
