We've talked a couple of times about having a go at brewing beer from scratch. We did it once at a micro brewery, a long time ago.
Then a few days ago I read on one of my online-friend's blogs about a thing called a Grainfather and some super helpful software called Beersmith. (https://johnnorman.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/microbreweries-and-the-revolution-in-home-brewing/#more-2632)
It sounded really interesting, so I forwarded it on to DH to see what he thought. We had a brief discussion about it, that it might be worth doing as a summer project. It's a considerable investment, but if it produces proper quality beer it would be worth it. I also imagine that the second-hand value, should it turn out not to suit us, will also be reasonable.
We didn't talk about it after that because DGS-H happened, and when Hayden happens very little else does -DH and I haven't really talked about anything over the last few days.
Yesterday evening, in passing, DH mentioned that he'd ordered a Grainfather.
So it looks like our summer project is on.
Thank you to John Norman for the info!
