I got a special surprise when Box Brew Kits sent me a home brewing kit to make homemade beer, complete with a Vanilla Porter mix!
Today I’m unboxing this kit. Join me (and *Betty) in the future as I try not to explode my house and set this thing in motion! I’ll be checking in on the progress and intermediate steps in future vlogs and hopefully more small brew batches of delicious beers in the future!
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s your favorite style of beer?
I love dark, dark beers; Stouts, Porters, etc. You can check out what I’m drinking on http://instagram.com/samproof
The Kit I’m using is the 1 gallon Handcrafted Small Batch Beer Making Home Brewing Kit with cobalt blue bottles:
For my first batch I’ll be brewing up the Bourbon Vanilla Porter:
•1 gallon beer making ingredient recipe kit
•All grain recipe kit
•Includes grains, hops, yeast, muslin straining bag, Madagascar vanilla bean
•Takes approx 3 weeks from start to finish
•Includes no-rinse sanitizer and priming sugar
* Don’t worry folks Betty will not be drinking this beer. But she will be taking part of the process. I think this hands on approach to applicable science is an awesome experience for a kid to see happen.
