This weekend I tried my hand at homebrewing! I ordered myself a nice little kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop and a beer that I instantly fell in love with after readying the name – Jalapeno Saison. Having a long history with legos and the frustration that can occur and having never brewed before, I read the instruction 6 times over before even beginning. I then read each step twice during the process. Yet, I still managed to miss that I needed ingredients that weren’t included in the package; agave nectar and jalapenos. Luckily I always have spicy peppers in the house and I made for a quick substitute for the nectar with honey; only after I confirmed the sugar concentration comparison with this nifty website. It turns out 1 unit honey = 1 unit agave nectar. Check out the gallery and video below!
