Beer Blogging

As you may be aware, I recently started homebrewing.  It's something I had thought about trying for a while, but wasn't sure if I could pull it off.  Kristal probably got tired of me talking about it and not doing anything, so she bought me a Mr Beer kit for my birthday, which is a fool-proof way to get into brewing. From there, the hobby has grown and along with a few friends I am slowly advancing up the scale of complexity.  There are a lot of good beer blogs out there, but the internet is big enough for all of us.  I by no means want this blog to become exclusively about beer, but brewing is a fairly regular event at my house and so blogging about it will help keep me in the flow of writing.  I also take a very scientific approach to brewing, and want to write not just about what I brewed and how, but why.

To begin with I will be working on a series of posts about the four fundamental ingredients of brewing: Malt, Yeast, Hops and Water.  After that I will probably give a summary of the beers brewed to date, then we will get into more detailed descriptions of the brew days as they occur.
