Day 49

Finally back in the Teaching Brewery! Our team was on the small (50L) pilot system, making a double batch of one of Jon Dowling’s new recipes, Dunkel Weissen Bock. The grain bill was mainly pilsner malt, with some malted wheat, some caramel malt and a touch of Black Prinz for a really deep black colour. The name of the hop variety escapes me–it was a German aromatic hop of some kind added at the start of the boil. Looking forward to trying some when it hits the campus store.

Yawn! Working in a brewery is a disco surfing time, but you are on your feet (in steel-toed rubber boots) from sunup to sundown. Mid-term exam in Sensory Evaluation tomorrow, time for bed!
