Year: 2020

First home brewing experience

Beginning of August 2020. Bored as hell because of the pandemic, I decided to give it a try. And it worked! The beer tasted so flavorful that I don’t think I will stop brewing any time soon!

Notice the difference in the color as the first one (on the left) is “cleaner”

I basically used 5 liters of water, hops, dry malt extract and Kveik. Ah, and sugar for the carbonation process! That’s it! No cooking, no pans, no complicated process.

Transferring the beer to smaller bottles to start the carbonation process

One of the things I like the most about traveling is discovering new places. Nowadays with so many tourists traveling everywhere, it’s not so easy to find a new destination, a place no one has told you about. So, whenever I get the chance to go to a place I have not heard about, I like to take my chances. I keep my expectations down in order not to get frustrated so easily and I search for the bare minimum information not to spoil the experience. And then I go..

Sometimes we are unlucky, but sometimes we are lucky! San Gregorio de Polanco was one of these lucky strikes. A hidden gem.
