Pinging to the Homebrewers and Wine Makers list
Mint wine is good for summer. It's also good on fruit deserts.
Next up will be a spiced wheat. They have become my favs.
Currently sipping upon a Summit Extra Pale Ale or 3. These are the beers that got me to love craft brews and have a special place in my heart, also they are really cheap at Costco =)
Hubby is the brewer in this home. He recently started to grind his own grains and whatever else kinda lingo stuff beer people do. :)
He also brought a ferocious LP burner thingy to use outside because he damn near ruined my lovely new gas range the last time he did a brew indoors.
All I know is that the next over last brew he did got him passed out after five mugs. PASSED OUT. And he can handle his beer and liquor pretty darn well.
I guess that batch was successful.
This Sunday I am going to the second annual “Homebrew for Hunger” here in Chapel Hill. Sorry folks, it’s all sold out!

Oh, Red that is beautiful. Makes me want to learn how to make mead. Another “hobby” and hubby will move to the garden shed. That is lovely.
It’s going to be a busy beer day for me. First up, bottling 5 gallons of cider and 5 gallons of the Chocolate Coffee Stout. Next up, I have to keg the 20 gallons I brewed 2 weeks ago. I need to get them on gas ASAP since I am bringing them with us on our Thanksgiving/fishing trip on Wed.
I almost want to brew this weekend but the idea of leaving beer to ferment while I am away is not appealing. I have had things go wrong before and it’s just not worth the risk.
Happy Brewing everyone!
