First Batch – Dunkelweizen

malted grains

I’m proud of this beer. I imagine each batch getting better and better, yet I’m still amazed at how good this home-brew turned out. I’m calling it “First Batch – Dunkelweizen”

I shall now take this moment to thank Leah, co-founder of Toastybros. Home Brewed Beers, for helping me with this batch as well as the many future brews to come. She also designed the logo and labels.

I can’t wait to see how the second batch of beer turns out.
