Natty Light Is the First Beer in Space

Natty Light Is the First Beer in Space

Of all the beers to send to space, they sent Natural Light

Following in the footsteps of the father-son team who sent an iPhone into space, two Natural Light fans (they exist?) decided to send a can into space using a weather balloon, making Natty Light the first beer in space.

According to Natty Light's YouTube channel, "The spacecraft was composed of a styrofoam cooler carrying the first beer (full beer) in space on board, a GPS tracking device, an HD video camera pointed at another (empty) can on the outside of the ship."

Watch the two-and-a-half hour journey below. Apparently they haven't popped open the beer yet, so suggestions are welcome for what to do with it now that it's back from space.

Complete Guide To All Grain Brewing (Little Equipment or Experience Needed)

Before we begin I want to make a few things clear about what will be covered in this post just so you know what you’re getting into here:

  • This is a post aimed primarily at beginners and people that have never brewed before.
  • It is also good for people that may have brewed with beer kits and want to progress to using all-grains and hops.
  • This post is quite long. Bookmark it and take your time.
  • The main objective of this post is to get people brewing with the minimum expenditure. Therefore I focus on how to make small batches of high quality beer so that we can make do with the minimum in equipment.
  • The level of detail in this post only skims the surface. I know most people just want to make a good, tasty beer and would rather do further reading (should they wish) after.

Now you have these points in mind, let’s begin.

There is nothing more satisfying than taking the cap off and pouring a pint of one of your own home brewed beers. There is something extremely gratifying about it, especially the very first bottle of your first ever batch of beer. In this article I hope to instil this feeling in you after you have made your first beer.

This post has been created to enable you to brew simple all grain beers, bypassing the need to buy a beer kit, that should hopefully set you off on a home brewing journey.After all when you cook a meal following the recipe you go and get each individual ingredient and maybe if you are feeling creative you put your own spin on it. This same principle of finding the best ingredients and taking your time applies to lovingly crafting your own beer.

With this premise in mind let’s take a look at what you are going to need to begin brewing. If you have never brewed before the last thing you are going to want to do is go out and buy a lot of equipment that you may use infrequently.

What I have tried to do with these recipes and instructions is utilise as much of the stuff you already have at home without the need to go and buy a lot of expensive stuff right off the bat.

If you find that after you’ve made a beer using this post as a reference and like it then by all means go out and build your home brewery!
