Some time ago heid got me a beer making kit for a birthday present, I think, which was followed up by some brewing books. Although I love beer, I’ve never tried making it mostly out of respect for its complexity – leave that to the pros! On top of that, I knew it would be an involved process, and my dance card is already full. But it still sounded interesting, and I didn’t want heids gift to go unused, so I dove in!

My first attempt is only a few days old at this point, so it needs nearly a month more of waiting to mature. Still, I might be awesome – the recipe the kit came with was a Jalapeno Saison… but I didn’t have any japs, so I used a habenero instead!
