We’ve been busy this week brewing our Stone Beer and getting some shiny new tanks … but back to the Stone Brew Day story … With the brew mashed in and the brewery full of sweet malt aromas, it was time to get the fire started. Building a fire outside the brewery still feels a bit weird but that’s what this beer is all about. This year we starting brewing later in the day so by the time fire had burnt down we could see the glowing stones come out of the fire.
Apart from the fun of brewing, it was great to sit around the fire and share a laugh with the crew that had gathered on the day.
With the fire blazing and the brew moving towards the kettle, it was time to knock up some pizzas. Yep, all that brewing makes you hungry, and making pizza is something we love doing at Stone & Wood.
Then it was down to the job of pulling those hot stones out of the coals and getting them into the kettle.
With the stones hissing away in the brew kettle it was time to load some of the hot coals into our pizza oven and cook some pizzas washed down with a few beers. These are just a few quick shots taken on our phones on the run during the day, but we ‘ll post more once we’ve had to time to settle down after such a big week.
