Its time to start brewing for PSF VII so today the RyePA got brewed. It was also my first double batch of beer. 11 gallons is a lot of finished beer. The 13 or so gallons of wort is also very, very heavy and I don’t have a pump. So I tried to make gravity work for me as often as possible. while I did have some success with that approach, I need a pump to do this regularly.
This is a pretty hoppy brew that is still pretty well balance and great summery beer.
