As you may be aware, I recently started homebrewing. It's something I had thought about trying for a while, but wasn't sure if I could pull it off. Kristal probably got tired of me talking about it and not doing anything, so she bought me a Mr Beer kit for my birthday, which is a fool-proof way to get into brewing. From there, the hobby has grown and along with a few friends I am slowly advancing up the scale of complexity. There are a lot of good beer blogs out there, but the internet is big enough for all of us. I by no means want this blog to become exclusively about beer, but brewing is a fairly regular event at my house and so blogging about it will help keep me in the flow of writing. I also take a very scientific approach to brewing, and want to write not just about what I brewed and how, but why.
