Meanwhile, In the Real World

 

Well, time is precious when you have a seven-month old in the house.  I had to choose between brewin’ and ‘quein’ and posting about said brewin’ and ‘quein’.  So I chose to lay low online for a while.  In fact, it took two days just to write this post.  That doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to the two greatest hobbies God gave us.  Without further adieu, I present this Summer’s meat and brew activities.  (more…)

No, not legs; head .  After only a week in the bottle (forgot to post about it, but didn’t get any pictures anyhow), I decided to toss a bottle of the Saazy Blonde into the fridge for a “carb check” (more…)
