I think your dark area is too transparent - the tiling photo behind is distracting, and the differing dark areas draw the eye away from the text.
These are only cosmetic concerns, of course.
Yeah, I noticed that too...not a huge deal but I'd clean it up a bit.
One suggestion, it looks like in some cases you list your grain by weight, but in others you list as a percentage of grain bill. I would recommend trying to stay as consistent as possible; so either list everything by weight (my preference), or list everything by percentages.
I have a blog too and I have to admit that I'm guilty of inconsistencies too.
One other recommendation, add some kind of an index other than just the posting history. On mine I used "Pages" to add static indexes. I have one for Equipment, one for Recipes - Beer, one for Recipes - Food, and so on. Each index contains an alphabetical list of items. Hopefully that makes sense.
Also remember to include other basic info like batch size, mash temps, etc. I try to remember to include as much basic info as possible so that even someone new to all-grain brewing could figure it out.
