Today we decided to take a day off from working in the studio, so we could test out our new home-brewing equipment that we pieced together from Craigslist, friends, and Arctic Brewing Supply. On Saturday we’re going to brew with fellow brewers at the annual Brew-a-thon, hosted by the Great Northern Brewers Club. This event takes place on the closest Saturday to National Homebrew Day (May 7th). If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to brew, show up to this event (you don’t have to be a GNBC member). Here are the deets: https://www.facebook.com/events/1399498993704539/
Scott started brewing in high school, but took a few years off, and we started seriously brewing again in 2005. We just finished the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) class, which taught us a lot more about beer and brewing. So today we’re brewing a pale ale, a nice light beer that will be refreshing this summer while we’re building a cabin in McCarthy. Work can wait one day, especially since we both worked on Saturday and Sunday. Just another benefit of being self-employed.
