The first and biggest of a few #homebrew upgrades this summer: #allgrain I got 68% efficiency on my first batch, an English #paleale. I’m happy for my first time, but hope to improve quickly.

Experimenting with peppers for my chipotle IPA #homebrew. #IPA and smoked ale with habanero, Anaheim, control, Cheyenne/ finger and Serrano peppers. Think I’m going with a blend of habanero and Cheyenne.

Of course I cut the crap out of my hand, but let’s focus on what’s important: 5 gallons of #iipa feeding the ants. Tragic. #homebrew
