I brewed some raw ale this weekend. Looking forward to tasting it. #homebrew
Brewing raw ale. June 23rd, 2015. Filling fermentors with unboiled wort. This past weekend I was able to try a brewing technique that I've been wanting to do for a few months now: Brew a no-boil beer, AKA Raw Ale. most brewers have been taught that you have to boil beer, that's just the way it ...

Does anyone recognize this plant? Looks like it's in the mint family but doesn't have much in the way of aromatics.

Kraut!
On the left is turmeric-black pepper kraut and the right is curtido. They're both amazingly delicious. I'll definitely need to make more.

Depends on how cold your cellar gets, I guess? My fridge is crammed with fermentation projects from years gone by. But it's decidedly much colder than a cellar ever gets. Experiment!
