It’s been a few posts since I’ve mentioned homebrewing in this blog, so, for those interested:
Batch #3 (a pale ale) was started a week ago; it is coming along quite nicely, with an appropriate “piney” hops aroma. I’ll bottle it at the end of the week, and it will be available for drinking around February 10.
Homebrewing, like so many hobbies, is quite cheap and easy to dive into, but after a bit of experience, the desire to become better (and the time/money required to do so) becomes an inevitability. Already, I dream of expanding my repertoire to wort chillers, secondary frementers, antioxidants, and all-grain brewing. If nothing else, this is one of the more “mainstream hobbies” I’ve had thus far.
