Cat Party Brewing

misadventures in homebrewing since 2015

the most unattractive beer we’ve made (yet)

Our favorite neighborhood brewery, Fair State Co-Op, did a wort giveaway for member-owners. They gave us 5 gallons of wort (unfermented beer), and we got to take that home to ferment and enjoy. Just add yeast, keep the yeast happy, and keg it a few weeks later! Easy, right?

Theirs was a hoppy wheat beer that was eventually sold at the taproom as Member Design #3.

Ours had pretty good flavor… but it turned out kinda gray for some reason.

Update: A few months later, this has started to look a little better:
