  • 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!

    My romas are turning red. I should be picking them this upcoming week. There's 4 yellow pear
    plants in there too, all to the far right... that's about 3 too many. They've been producing
    like crazy.

    Despite the heat wave, and losing power for 20 hours last Saturday during a pop-up storm (it
    uprooted trees, ripped the power lines off my house... fun times!) this beer has appeared to
    settle out and...

    I made Peter Reinhart's Nepoletana pizza dough recipe twice now and it was delicious! I plan on
    trying out the NY Style dough recipe next.
