Well, I’m back from my holiday! A special thanks to Mikey for looking after the blog and updating everything while I was away.
I am currently extremely jet lagged but trying to stay awake, to move through it. Thankfully, I still had a bottle of The Friedlieb handy; it’s a nice refreshing porter, but still has a caffeine hit! This went nicely as an after work pick me up.
Being away for so long, my beer had some good time to bottle condition, and I hope to try a bottle of the IPA we made a little while ago this weekend. This will be before the official taste test that Mikey and I will get around to in time.
Coming back to my home brew collection with fresh eyes, it’s also apparent that I need to do a bit of an inventory… I have a habit of wanting to save the last bottle of a batch, “just in case.” I don’t even know what I have anymore or where it is in the various cabinets and places i stash my beer. I think this weekend will call for a bit of an inventory.
You know you have a home brew problem when you have to take inventory. This is a good problem to have I suppose.
Then: back to brewing!
Anyway, the holiday was great. I managed to try some great craft beer in Scotland and Sweden. I even had a Norwegian Brown Ale. Hopefully it’s given me some inspiration!
