Beer number 47 is a wet hopped cream ale (wet hopping is simply using fresh hops that haven't been dried). Had to pick probably 4-7 days early due to an incoming storm with possible high winds and hail. Survived a hail storm a few days earlier and didn't want to risk another.My plants are young, so I didn't get much, only 6 ounces, but should be just enough for this one batch. Lame, I know.Cooking the cereal mash... Meanwhile, the 6-row malt is going through it's first rest.Cereal mash then added to the mash tun for the second rest. Note the high-tech Home Depot cooler.While it ferments, I'll be working on layouts and lettering for Ralph Snart #8.
