Default Diplomatic Homebrewing (as in overseas)

My job has taken me overseas to an Embassy. After a week, my DME showed up so, now I'm off and running.
A couple of pics: 1) Top of brew closet with supplies to make apple wine, 2) bottom w/ 4.5G of blonde ale fermenting away and the beginnings of my bottle collection, 3) what I am currently drinking, and 4) HBT up and running!

Cheers all!

I'm in Baghdad for the next year or so - but lookie at what I found
Someone approached me at the dining facility and wanted me to look at an abandoned plot in the community garden.....I found a HOP plant on the ground! Not sure what type or anything. How they got the rhizome here, I'll never know, and who cares. I figure I can try the cones as aroma additions so I'll harvest some more, cut it back and put up a tall tripod like I saw at Jefferson's Monticello and see where we get from here.

More to follow!

Cheers

An update:
1) My Blonde Ale (I have 5G of pale ale in bottles conditioning)
2) My brew set up in my tiny kitchen
3,4,5) BrandonO's Graf brewing and finishing in the fermenter

The adventure continues!
Cheers

I have a vanilla honey bourbon porter and an IPA on tap. I have a brown ale carbonating. I have a coconut porter and IPA in secondary. Today I made an Mint IPA and a two hearted ale clone.

Awesome, man! When I was in Afghanistan, General Order #1 prevented us from doing such things. Glad to see they let you have a taste of home while you're there.
