We have some friends coming by tomorrow morning for an informal ale-brew lecture, demonstration and early-in-the-day-tasting. It's so nice to have the kitchen back and to be brewing again! Tonight we start a 5-gallon batch of a Porter, a gallon of Cardamom Ale and perhaps a gallon of Sarsaparilla Ale. Tomorrow I'll start at least one more gallon of herbal ale of some kind or another. I have a batch of blueberry wine I may bottle as well. Life is sweet.
