    When I used to live in northeastern Ohio, lots of folks had Concord wine grapes. My father and
    uncles used to make several barrels of a dry Concord wine. The recipe was simple, crush grapes

    Tampa Bay Brewing in Ybor City, has also has a kick ass restaurant, with great burgers and you

    PBR does not seem to taste the same here in Florida as it did in Ohio. I used to love PBR up in
    Ohio, in fact it was my "go to" beer. Down here, I really don't care for it. Miller High Life
    is now my ...

    Probably have enough malted barley and wheat for two batches left. They have been stored in
    plastic buckets with gaskets on the lids at a constant 74*F. 18-24 months old. Grain smells
    good, no insects...
