Across the street from Jesse and Aurora's house is the Copper Kettle Brewing Company. For an early Christmas present, Jesse gave me half a batch of my choice of beer. We brewed it together, and he'll deliver my half when he comes out here for Christmas. The total yield will be 5 cases (12 bottles per case) of 22 ounce bottles.
The process was simple. I picked one of the options available (I'm on a Boatmeal Stout), and
we followed all the steps in the provided recipe. Help was available throughout the process.
It will age for about three weeks at the brewery, and then Jesse will bottle it. We get to design our own labels, but we haven't yet.
