I’m Melting!

Too hot. Cold spring leaped into steamy summer without any bridge. Unexpected. Computer room too hot to bear for photo upload time. Arms stick to desk when trying to write. Please, O Gods of the Cold Fronts, make a visit to New Hampshire!

Old School: Adventures With Home Brew

Here is an article that makes me glad I started brewing in 1994, and not, say, 1964.
