Beer!

Back in Philly, we were really on a roll with our homebrewing. It seemed we always had a batch to drink and a batch in the works. The move(s) disrupted our flow, but last week we started a new batch of beer: a porter. It turns out the brew store in town is less expensive than the one in Philly, AND everything except the hops is organic. We are used to spending about $45 for a 5 gallon batch of beer, but this time we spent $30. Not bad for 50 bottles of beer, eh?

Because it's so hot right now, the primary fermentation happened really quickly (not ideal) and we will rack the beer and do a secondary fermentation in the next few days. We decided to experiment and added some coffee (from the dumpster) to the beer, so we'll see how that turns out.
