More specifically, brewing. Brewed a batch of beer last night for the first time in almost a year. It was supposed to be a 10 gallon batch, but I effed a few things up along the way and only ended up with enough sugar exctraction to muster up about 7-8. Ben Gregory bought the ingredients, and we used my equipment... we are splitting the end product. Not a bad deal for either of us.

It took us 6 hours. Along the way, I managed top melt a spot into my dad's plastic/wood compound deck material. I swear, less than 48 hours after they leave for Florida and entrust their house to me, I go and break it. I guess I've got about 3 months to figure out what to do about it.

When all was said and done, we ended up with two big jugs of nasty slop. Hopefully, the slop will start fermenting today and be ready to keg in a few weeks. It should be an ESB - a somewhat light and malty english beer. Of course, we took a few liberties with the type and amounts of ingredients, so hard telling what we'll actually have. I'll keep ya posted.
