Here are some pics from the first runnings.
Here is a pic shot by Willie of me working the ice bath chiller.
The gravity was dead on to the recipe, but that means my efficiency was only around 70%. Not as high as I would like, but acceptable. The whole process took about 5 hours and 15 minutes.
I pitched with the Platinum strain of White Labs Premium Bitter. I checked after about 18 hours and the bubbles were less than a second apart.
The only other beer related activities, other than drinking my brother-in-law's Sam Adams was de-labeling bottles in a OxyClean bath.
I have another brew day coming up July 24th, so maybe I can get the Snakebite in this month anyway.
