{DIY} Homebrew Attempt #3

Our third homebrew (thus the “003”), a Kobayashi Wheat with Sorachi Ace, has been labeled and sealed as one of our wedding favors.

Pete designed the labels, which we printed on Kraft sheets from Paper Source (cue angels singing — that place is amazing).

We decided to incorporate one of our wedding colors by dripping yellow wax down the bottles, Maker’s Mark-style.

With a makeshift double-boiler (an aluminum can inside of a pot), we melted batches of wax beads.

Emma Stone stared at us from the newspaper as we took turns dipping the bottles in the wax (c’mon girl, no one believes you wear Colorburst).

We cracked open our first one last night and it tasted like beer to me (in that I didn’t like it), so I deem it a success. We’ll probably keep a few extras for upcoming anniversaries…hopefully by then we’ll have a few more homebrews under our belts.
