Wow. Five months since my last post. Yikes.
I’d like to say I’ve been too busy (which, recently is entirely true, but that’s another story), but honestly I just haven’t had much interest in maintaining this site/blog. Most of my spur-of-the moment thoughts end up on Twitter, pared down to 140 characters. In the past, some of that may have ended up here and expanded upon.
I do have a few things I want to share in the coming days/weeks, however, so I figured it was time to dust off the rusting, neglected blog.
One of the things I’ll be posting in the next few days is my experience with my first “all-grain” batch of beer. I’ve been brewing exclusively extract or extract with grains (or, very rarely, partial mash) batches, and finally made the switch (sort of), so I have a few things to write about that.
Also, we recently returned from Montreal, where we spent some time visiting local brew pubs. I have stuff I feel it would be worthwhile to share from that. (And photos. I always have photos to share from our trips.)
Oh, and tomorrow I start a mandolin class at the Old Town School, so maybe there’ll be some insight from the perspective of a guitarist learning mandolin (beyond the basic chords I already know).
Hopefully, these couple of upcoming posts will get me to change my habits and start posting more often. I make no promises.
In the meantime, here’s one photo from Montreal:
