When you discover that human civilisation switched from nomadic existence to settlements in order to grow grains to brew beer and make bread, and you feel connected to 10,000 years of others who share the same passion.

When there's buckets and carboys under the kitchen table and a tub full of 2 row next to the tub full of dog food.

When SWMBO returns from a trip and brings you beer from a brewery she visited along with a pint glass and bottle opener, hop candy and (this one makes me proud) a pound of specialty grains they told her were hard to find on the east coast (midnight wheat)!

Yes, I will be putting together a recipe based around a specialty grain.

You should even use the hop candy in the brew

I like this idea. Midnight wheat and hop candy sounds like it would go well in a belgian. Is there an ingredient list on the hop candy?

I've only seen two versions of hard hop candy (so far)... One has cascade in it, the other East Kent Golding... I'd rather save the candy to have outside of a brew. Use more of those hops in it, or maybe drop a candy into a brew one you pour it into glass.

The hop candy is pretty much just corn sugar and EK Goldings hop extract. It tastes like sugar with a hint of hops. I think cascade hops would be better, and definitely want more hop flavor.

Another thought, crush the candy to rim the glass like one of those fancy drinks.

Though birthday brews are something to be excited about.
