My 5th Brew Of The Year

I brewed my 5th beer this year yesterday and I am very excited. I am getting more and more confident in what I am doing for several reasons. The main reason is I take lot's of notes. The picture to the left is basically steeped ½ lb 60 Degree Caramel Crystal Grains that I added to a beer kit. The picture to the left is about 2 minutes into the process at 162 degrees F. I did this before but in this particular brew I also changed the yeast from the Nottingham packet that came with the kit to the 11.5g Safale us-05 Dry Ale Yeast which should give the beer a crisp clean taste.

The picture to the left is about 10 minutes into the process. You can see how rich in color the wort is.

The final picture to the left is 20 minutes into the process. Man this looks like it will be a good beer.
