New to brew


One of my favorite Christmas presents this past year was a homebrew kit my wife got me. I know it’s been a while since Christmas, but I’m thinking about dedicating a segment of my blog to the art of home brewing. Since I’m still relatively new to this whole process, you’ll all get to share … Continue reading
