Commence the brewing!

Adding the Malt ExtractThe moons have aligned and brewing has commenced!  After almost 2.5 years of being out of the game, Nomad Brewing Company has produced a new beer: The Sandpiper Pale Ale.  This Sunday we boiled it all up and stashed the concoction in our boiler room to bubble away.

Jonah, Will, Harper and I decided to tackle a clone of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for our first attempt.  That way we can do a taste test to see how good we are 🙂

Jonah and I got all the ingredients when we were in Anchorage last week.  It’s ignited a spark.  Will is creating a recipe for our next batch and Jonah is dreaming about kegging.

Enjoy some photos!

    Is Harper going to be the first taste-tester?!
