Back In The Saddle

A few weeks ago Leigh casually mentioned that she thought I should get back into home brewing. So for the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about it. So yesterday I mentioned to her that I liked her idea and wanted to go to Winooski to the Vermont Homebrew Supply and get a beer kit and get started. Merry Christmas to me!!
I picked up two different recipes and the ingredients to brew them. I am starting off with tow India Pale Ales. One is called Expedition's Reward that is a custom blend from the store and the other I got from one of several recipe books they keep on a table with some other literature. They have different grains and a different beginning hop. I am sure I will be calling Gary frequently to ask him questions as I start brewing my own beer again.
I brewed up the Expedition's Reward as soon as we got home yesterday afternoon. All seemed to go well. The wort is now upstairs bubbling away.
Thank you Leigh.
