OK, the brew is done. Now I have a little less than 2 gallons of concentrated malt/hop brew call the "wort." I know, nice name right? That needs to be cooled as quickly as possible so you see it here in a bath of ice water. Once it reaches about room temperature I will pour it through a straining cloth into the bucket that you see in this picture. I will add some cold water until the mixture reaches 5 gallons. That's right, 5 gallons of beer. YUM! This bucket serves as the primary fermenter meaning that my concoction will sit sealed in this container for about a week to generate most of the alcohol. More on that later. Stay tuned.
