The Presidents’ Brew
February 12, 2011 § 2 Comments
There are many times when facts go against reality. For instance:
Fact: beer is way difficult to make
Reality: fuck facts
And so we began work on the Rye PA, an IPA that won 1st Place in the Peoples’ Vote at the Beer Taste (put on by Phinny Neighborhood Association). The recipe is courtesy of Brew Your Own magazine. Now, to attempt such an award-winning recipe it takes attention to detail, commitment, and balls.
The process itself is not a-typical. Ultimate Brewing Co. has been hard at work perfecting the do-it-yourself technique of home brewing. Yet an event such as brewing an awarding-winning beer (on Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, no less!), is no small task. Humbled, but not deterred, the work became hot and heavy, as boiling turned into mixing, filtering became none existent, and the brews kept on flowing (down our throats). Several bottles and an bowl of momma duke’s pasta contraption later, the fermenting was set to begin. With all eyes raised to sky and cigarette smoke billowing from our mouths, the process was underway.
There is no turning back now. There is no brew we can not master. Mr. Lincoln would be proud.
