In October, Jeff and I decided to dip our toes into home-brewing. We had been curious to try it before but it had never made it near the top of the priority list. Early in 2011, we made hard cider from our apples a goal and set about getting some equipment and doing a bunch of reading. Over the weekend we bottled our first batch up.
I still feel like I have lots to learn (I guess I always do), but the first batch is a success. It’s a bit tart but not terribly so and just slightly fizzy. This little foray into home-brewing has us excited to try more and different things. I’m excited to whip up a few small batches of wine and beer with homegrown hops in the coming year.
What’s brewing in your kitchen (literally or figuratively) these days?
