Our Home Brewed Beer Experience
It’s funny that I am posting about beer brewing today since I finally got results of my recent endoscopy. If you’ve been following along you know that I’ve been dealing with some health issues lately, which turned out to be constant acid reflux. The pain was so bad that I thought I was having a heart attack! For real! So the results: “Mild inflammation” of my stomach and “mild reflux.” All I have to say is: Mild my ass.
So back to the funny part: Alcohol doesn’t help heal the stomach inflammation and if that doesn’t heal the reflux will just continue. However, here I am, telling you all about the wonders of making your own beer.
It is wonderful though, Even if it might be a little frustrating since you have to wait a month to see if your beer is acceptable or not. For Christmas I got Joe a beer brewing kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop, Specifically the Smoked Wheat variety. This was our first time brewing beer so we made a few mistakes. Our beer turned out watered down because of a tiny measurement issue in the beginning steps. Oops. It also wasn’t as “foamy” as other beer. Its okay, we’ll nail it eventually! We’re going to try our hand at being brew masters again soon; we’ve already ordered our next brew, Coffee and Donuts!
Eventually we hope to experiment with our own flavors but for now, coffee and donuts it is — Wish us luck!
A quick note to everyone who has been sticking around reading Sweet Remedy while I’m having acid reflux/food related issues: I really appreciate everyone’s kind words and advice. Thanks for being a pal.
