Having now been homebrewing since June, and with 3 beers completed, one conditioning and another in the bucket, I had a lovely little observation tonight. I opened up my fridge and had two sixers (one LHBS kit IPA, one my recipe PM red) two remanent bottles of my first kit steam and some bottles of apfelwein. All the alcohol was made in house, by me in the past 5 or so months, and there are two more batches coming down the line. It all tastes good (some of it great, the steam is just palatable) and it's all there, right on hand, hanging out with the cheese and oj. Homebrewing is a cool hobby and it's nice to have a visible reminder of the creative powers that exist with water, malt, hops, yeast and people to mix 'em all up the right way. I apologize for waxing on this, but it's a cool thing to think about every now and then.
