    ABOUT ME

  • I always found our American history to be intriguing..American moonshiners past and present, the Whiskey Rebellion,the folly that was (and still is) Prohibition. I began to really enjoy local beers (Bells Beer in Comstock/Kalamazoo, MI) and at the same time began to garden and grow/can/pickle my own food. So, I thought, "If I can grow my own food, I can make my own beer." I actually made 5 gallons of hard cider as my first brew of choice, because it was fall and SW Michigan has many cider options available. It turned out very strong and too much of an astringent taste, but that didn't stop me from enjoying every last damn drop!

    peppers I harvested.My habeņeros grew like weeds; not too shabby for my first attempt at
    growing them. This is ...

    Let me know how it goes! I'm in the midst of picking muscadines myself. I picked some the other
    day. I'm not sure about the weight, but it reached the 2 gallon mark on my fermentation bucket,
    and I ha...

    I finally tried my hand at a homemade hot sauce. This one used 12 of the Caribbean Red
    Habeņeros, with carrot, onion, roasted garlic, and a honeycrisp apple. The apple left a lot of
    pulp after i blend...

    Any issues using only Mosaic? I'm about to do a session ale using Mosaic, and have read that

    Centennial as a bitte...

    About to have a bunch of habeņeros soon. Any suggestions on what to do with them all?

    When I first saw it I thought it kind of looks like blossom end rot but I've never seen it in
    spots like that. Whatever it is I hope you figure it out and get a good harvest.Nice big tomato
