I don’t know about you, but I would never pass up the chance to be a fly on the wall during a brew day. Watching grain turn into mash? Seeing yeast come to life?

Yes…okay…maybe I’m too much of a beer dork.

Lucky for me, Michael Peticolas brought the brew day to all of us yesterday by live tweeting the first run of a double brew day as they made the next wonderful batch of Velvet Hammer. Peticolas posted pictures every step of the way.

For your enjoyment, I’ve compiled them below. Feast your eyes on a day in the life of brewing Velvet Hammer.

As a quick aside, Peticolas also tweeted that he starts early for a double brew day, like 5:15 a.m. early. So this, I’m sure, was quite a full day.

I don’t know about you, but that’s some beautiful brewage. The only way this could have been better is if it was video instead of still images. Or if I was actually there, of course.

By the way, the worst part of cleaning up, in my opinion, is that you can’t enjoy any of the brew you just finished for another two weeks. Having homebrew around to enjoy during the cleaning process usually eases the pain.
