Big Brew / Iron Brew Day at Grape and Granary

I was picking up some grains at the Grape and Granary and there was an ‘Iron Brew’ day going on (a la Iron Chef).  Half a dozen groups from Akron’s homebrew club, SAAZ, were there brewing.  Great bunch of guys and the systems they used were diverse with a lot of cool gadgetry.

The secret ingredient was ‘Turbinado Sugar’ – kind of like a light brown sugar.  There was everything being made from porters, pilsners, saisons and more.

He’s actually doing a 1 gallon batch of a ‘smoked’ beer. I guess if you don’t like the taste of it, you don’t want 5 -10 gallons of it.
