Staring at my first brew (Grand Cru) bubbling away in the garage! Man the garage smells great now!

Made three loaves of spent grain bread (regular, cranberry, and cheddar cheese).

Made dinner rolls by infusing caramelized onions and cheddar cheese into the dough and slicing them in cinnamon roll-like shapes before baking. They went amazingly with my wife's chili.

Brewed my one year / 20th batch for my Caribrewsary (all grain Caribou Slobber kit in honor of my first brew which was an extract version).

Invited a couple of friends over to partake in the food and brewing, one of which has sampled a variety of my brews, but it was his first time to experience the brewing process. The best part was that he even stuck around for cleanup!

And of course sampled completed product throughout the course of the day. Phew, I'm exhausted just typing that all out!

Edit : and performed the inaugural brew with my Blichmann floor burner. It preformed phenomenally!

Brewed an all-grain golden ale that somehow ended up 6 points lower than expected... Bottled 2 batches that badly needed bottling.

Didn't feel well towards the end of the brewday, so postponed cleanup for a few hours... Came back and saw a krausen in the hydrometer sample tube I had left out with wort in it. Realized I had pitched before aerating and taking a gravity reading, so I have the world's smallest open fermentation. If it's done tomorrow, I'll try it... Why not?

EDIT: Hey, that was pretty good. Hope the actual beer turns out like the mini-ferment.

I just started soaking 1.5 kg of wheat, and 1.5 kilos of barley to make some malt. The grain will eventually be turned into a two gallons of weizen, and the leftovers paired with some corn and rice to make some Co3C.

Wow I haven't posted on this thread in a while... Today I put almost all the finishing touches on my DIY roller mill. Hand crank (for now) made, mounts trimmed, drilled, and mounted, and planning for a stand... Might go to HD and roam the aisles to see what I come up with. I have power for the mill already in the garage, just need to get a lovejoy coupler at northern tool.
