Sunday, February 19th, 2012

I was not expecting to brew this weekend… Then Jamie started talking about the yeast he purchased to brew 24 gallons of “Snowfall Pale Ale” (his house beer).

As a child of the 80’s, I grew up watching Wil Wheaton on TV (Star Trek, Stand by Me). When I recently found out that he is also a home brewer – well, I knew that a beer needed to made in his honor. Yesterday, I noticed that FH Steinbarts (my LHBS) is going to […]

Baking Bread Baking Bread

I cook a lot and enjoy making many items from scratch. This includes things like pastas, gravy, pickles, pies, hot sauce and many other items.
