Brewing Sweet Stout at Iron Hill Brewery

Had a lot of fun brewing with Paul and Collin the other day at Iron Hill.  My stout will be on tap in a few weeks.  Here are som pictures from the day.

Here, Paul is hooking up pipes to pump hot water from the liquor tank into the brewing vat where that mash will take place

 

The mash kettle/brewing kettle holds 400 gallon of beer!

 

A look inside the mash kettle

 

Here, I'm switching outlets to now pump the liquid mash over to the lauter tun

 

Yes, I'm inside the mash tun. After the mash is pumped to the lauter tun, the mash kettle needs to be competely rinsed of all grain before the first running are pumped back in.

 

Paul begins to conduct the lauter. It is recirculated until it is clear of particles and then transferred back to the brewing kettle

 

Collin sanitizes the fermenter while the kettle boils

 

Now that's a lot of beer

 

The wort is now boiling!
