All right, they'd managed to get everything cleaned! It had actually taken a surprising amount of time, although Alphonsus got the impression that all the stuff Gror had was probably in excess of what he was going to need for his personal brewing.

"Let's go check up on your malt." It had probably been soaking for a good enough while now, which meant the elf could move on to the next steps.

oocSorry to keep you waiting! Didn't expect to get my trip extended, but I am back.

Alphonsus looked around at what he had cleaned and nodded when the suggestion came to check on the malt. He wondered how long had it been since the had left the malt to soak... It could be a candlemark or it could just be ten minutes, the elf couldn't really tell. When he was cleaning up, he never kept track of time.

Okay!

Alphonsus' malt was... well, it was still there. So that was good, right? The dwarf felt like it had been soaking for about the right amount of time by now.

"Now, do you recall what we do next?" He'd let Alphonsus try and do things on his own, see if he remembered at all.

Alphonsus pondered for a while, shaking away the ache from this shoulders. He guessed he might have been scrubbing for a few candlemarks, at the very least.

"I guess we should light a fire under the stove to boil some water first, Master Gror. Then we add the wheat and the malt to allow it to ferment?" The elf tried to recall what was the next step.

Indeed, yes. And from there... well, it was mostly a matter of waiting. It seemed like waiting was really quite a large part of this entire brewing process. Of course, there were specific parts of the process. Get a kettle of water and start to bring it to a boil, adding the grain in to steep while it heated. Then, add the malt after removing the heat, and make sure not to boil over. Hops were added at various intervals and when they were depended on the recipe in question. This mixture was now wort and the process of getting from it to alcohol... well, perhaps they were getting ahead of themselves.

For now, then, they had their malt, yes? Gror could provide other supplies. Time for Alphonsus to make the wort.

Alphonsus started filling the provided kettle with water, lit the stove up, waited for the water to begin boiling. He then added the grains into the kettle and waited. Once Master Gror nodded to continue, or when he judged it was long enough, he removed the kettle from the fire added the malt slowly, careful not to allow the water to overflow.

Along the way, he waited for instruction to see when he could add the other ingredients.

Well, no, that was it, really. Or at least, for the basics. Perhaps there were a few things one could add to try and get different effects, but the dwarf wasn't going to do Alphonsus that much of a favor - every recipe was sacred to a brewery, after all. It was up to the elf to figure things out on his own beyond the basics.

Once the mixture had been boiling for a fair enough amount of time, however, the heat needed to be taken away and the mixture allowed to cool, as the dwarf described what came next. The most important part, probably: fermentation. There were specific containers designed for this sort of thing, and once the wort was poured in, water could also be added to increase the volume. Once everything was inside of the container, it needed to be shaken around to aerate the wort, introducing more oxygen, which was needed by the yeast to operate. Then, of course, one added the yeast. Seal it, store it in a cool, dark place, and... wait.

There was a lot of waiting when it came to brewing. How long somebody fermented the beer was entirely up to them and it produced entirely different results as well. Lots of experimentation was going to be necessary - there were so many steps along the way to get creative with.
