Brewing Sweet Stout at Iron Hill Brewery Posted on May 14, 2010 by lancasterhomebrew Posted in Classes/Events 1 Comment 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! Cleaning out the spent grains from the lauter tun Shoveling out the grains Adding the bittering hops to the kettle Sanitizing the cannister of yeast Collin pumping the beer over to the fermenter Paul is ready to add the yeast and let them work their magic!
