Well, it has been a busy weekend with family in town and a million other things to do. However, I did spend Saturday morning brewing up my first batch of Pumpkin Amber Ale. Yeah I know, it is summer, not fall. But, we had about 6 pounds of pumpkin in the freezer (from last October's halloween party) that my wife wanted to get rid of. So far it smells great and is bubbling away like a madman. I can't wait to see how this one turns out. This is also my first time using US-56. Now for the hard part, waiting it out.
