Seriously though, I have never done a grain extract (I think that's what this is - correct me if I'm wrong). Whats everyone's thoughts on this??

P.S. the last 20 seconds are the best lol

I do the brewing in this household...kids don't need so much looking after as they are a little older.

Traditionally though, it was the domain of women, just like cooking.

I detest the term Stay At Home Mum, but I guess I kinda am....don't have a paid job, so do the household stuff, but also run the farm, lol!

LOL, I think i'm in love, a fellow extract/spec grain brewer of the opposite sex!

Boogs, are you asking what an "extract with specialty grain" brew is? If so, check this out. Basically you steep grain that doesn't need mashing (such as Crystal) in ~70 degree celcius water in your pot for around 30 mins. Then remove it and start your boil. When boiling, remove from heat and add enough malt extract to get your gravity to 1040, return to the boil and start hop additions.

All my extract recipes in the db on this forum are full extract/spec grain recipes.

Last time I brewed, I also spent some time looking after my son. My dick's still pretty massive.
