I had planned to brew today…but when I awoke at 3:30 am…and couldn’t go back to sleep, I decided there was no point in laying in bed tossing and turning any longer! So…there I was at 4 am…starting my water to boiling and steeping grains! Brew was complete and mess cleaned up before 7 am!
I brewed a clone of Bell’s Oberon beer…for those not familiar, Bell’s is a brewery in Michigan and Oberon is arguably their “signature” beer…very popular in this region…it’s seasonal and folks get excited when it comes out in mid spring…I brewed from an extract receipe I found online…here it is…and if you’re the creator…thanks!
