In honor of National Beer Day...

A few serving instructions:

Sail Delmarva: Cold Beer

I'm more of a cool beer than an ice cold beer guy. If I didn't want to taste it, I drink PBR.

"Cellar, around 53° F (12° C) " ?

My "Cellar" (aka) bilge is in the high 20's (°C) :-)

I even keep red wine in the fridge

Re: In honor of National Beer Day...

In fact, it is a real thing, celebrating the legalization of beer slightly before the ratification of the 18th amendment.

National Beer Day is celebrated in the United States every year on April 7, marking the day that the Cullen–Harrison Act was enacted after having been signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. This led to the Eighteenth Amendment being repealed on December 5, 1933, with ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. [1] April 6, the day prior to National Beer Day, is known as New Beer's Eve.

Re: In honor of National Beer Day...

Hey, thinwater, is this an April Fool?

But then, some of the States probably don't allow you to brew your own, still.

My Mom's birthday was April 6, New Beer's Eve indeed!

Re: In honor of National Beer Day...

After a freezing winter, this is the perfect time to start a new batch of homebrew. In November 2013 I tested whether I could brew beer onboard. https://sednahr35.blogspot.com/2013/...r-onboard.html I used glass jugs to ferment the wort. Does anyone know of a non-breakable container that would be easy to store onboard and still have the resulting beer taste good?

That was a great read! Would fermenting the wort in stainless steel vessels have an affect on the taste?

Food grade plastic (not water jugs, wrong type of plastic). Most hombrew shops sell basic brew buckets for this purpose and some fancier plastic brew vessels too. Stainless is a good option too...I use cornelius kegs ashore for fermenting, aging (meads), and dispensing.

Stainless is fine, its what all commercial breweries use.

Re: In honor of National Beer Day...

Over simplified article, if you are gonna do it right then each broad category of beer style has a proper serving temp range. It really does make a noticeble difference, give it try sometime. And of course you need the correct style of glassware for each type of beer too.

https://www.homebrewersassociation.o...-temperatures/

This of course only applies to real beer, not mass produced swill...which is best served near freezing so you cant taste it.


-- At Anchor in San Blas, Panama...drinking a Balboa (Panamanian swill) at proper serving temp (near freezing!)

Re: In honor of National Beer Day...

Great comments, I have a corny keg and food grade bucket that I can use for fermentation and a dispenser too. I was afraid all that would take up a lot of valuable space onboard, but perhaps no more than purchased beer.

You could do smaller batches to save space. Some folks brew batches as small as 1 gallon.

Yes... That's what I've been doing https://sednahr35.blogspot.com/2013/...r-onboard.html ... actually 2 X 1gal glass jugs. The challenge is to get away from the 1 gal glass jugs and reusable glass beer bottles.
