Alright here is the new brewing area. Plenty of storage for supplies, now I need to source 2 refrigerators one for bottles and one as a ferm chamber. I need to also make a trip to the local homebrew shop and start ordering some ingredients. Brewing gear should arrive towards the end of May, hopefully I can get a couple 220volt plugs in place by then. Oh and then the fun of figuring out the water specs. Best get to it.

Ha yeah I guess I do, although it has to do double duty and be my home office as well. Which is a little bit awesome in a way, but dangerous too I think... when are you planning your imperial brew day?

Water seems pretty soft and surprisingly good for brewing. I might not even have to treat.

Alright got the braumeister wired up and 4 empty fermenters. No ferm chamber yet but the basement only gets up to 21c and I will have a fan blowing on them for now.

Looks like a ekuanot pale ale is up next.

205 - Cashmere Single Hop
10l batch - 1.054/1.010 - mash 67c

Big day today, first brewday in 6 months! Surprisingly everything went off without an issue other than me boiling for an extra 30 minutes waiting for the kettle to hit 99c and not realizing at this elevation boil temps are 93c. Now I need to figure out my hop utilization at these lower temps.

Brewed up a simple pale ale with Cashmere. Just in case something goes off. I think this may be my base single hop recipe to try out new hops. I tossed in a gram a gypsum which puts me at 50ppm sulphate and 2.2 sulphate to chloride ratio.

Good choice of hop. I'm certainly enjoying the Cashmere and Azacca combo recently brewed.
