Beer

Beer is on my mind. This weekend Betsy and I bought a bunch of beer making equipment off of Craigslist. I've been wanting to try brewing for a while, and this Craigslist deal was just too good to resist. Included in the deal was two fermentation chambers (called "Carboys"), a lot of bottles, and sundry pieces of equipment like vapour locks and pots for boiling "wort."

So much for the software, now I just need to get the software: mainly just malt, yeast, and hops! With any luck I can get a batch going this weekend. It will need to ferment for a few weeks before I can bottle it, but I'm very much looking forward to it.

Perhaps when Ontario Apple Season gets into full swing I'll make some hard cider!

Dreaming of the day we can drink the beer or cider while listening to tunes through the amplifier. What a talented husband I have!
