I brewed a version of the first all grain beer that I ever brewed with my friend Dave. We bought the kit from northern brewer back in 2011. I wanted to brew it again but increased the grain and added Munich malt to create a beer similar to Bells Oberon ale.

Chilling the wort.

My homemade wort chiller. 50 ft of copper.

The wort cooled down in 15 minutes. I transferred to the fermenter. I had to much boil off and ended up with only 4.5 gallons of beer. I was shooting for 5.5. Original gravity is 1.061, a little higher than I wanted.

Draining into the fermenter and helping oxygenate the wort! Next pitch the yeast and wait!
