I haven't brewed in a while and I need to get back to it. That said, I've got some melon hops I want to try, given that they're described as imparting melon and strawberry. This time, however, I'm going to try a couple of d...

The first sample of the Summer Hops IPA turned out really well. REALLY WELL!

Jillian down at Jay's Brewing home brew supply recently got a stock of Summer hops in, and set 2 oz aside for me, for which I am greatly appreciative. She'd done some research (BeerMumbo says "apricot and melon profile") and...

Okay, I'm going to something a little different...I'm going to publish the recipe before I actually "brew" the mead. I'm doing this so that I can share the recipe with someone. As I was reading through Sacred Healing Herbal ...

Okay, if you've never seen The Replacements then the title of this post won't be nearly as funny to you as it is to me...but that's okay. I recently posted an update blog that included a brief discussion of a tool I was worki...
