What is Big Brew?

Big Brew is an event initiated by the American Homebrewers Association. Homebrewers everywhere brew beer on the same day, National Homebrew Day, May 1, 1999.

Why did we participate?

Brewing is our obsession. -So what else should we do on saturday, 1st May? Joining friends all around the world is always a good idea!

The only problems arose, when my wife insisted in doing something useful and thereby took apart my lauter manifold. But as you can see -- finally I've got them ...first runnings!

protein-rest is held during the wort-boil! I don't understand all the talk about protein rests! ...They _are_ essential - not for the mash, but for the brewer!
