Boise Brew Minute (episode 66) – “Beer Matt” at the Co-op talks about a collaboration brew between them and Woodland Empire. They’re making a gruit or hop-free beer based off an 800 year old recipe. This gruit uses mint, celery seeds and rye to balance the sweet malt flavors. It also has souring agents which are becoming more popular now but almost certainly would have been in beer 800 years ago due to less sterile brewing environments. The beer will be released at both locations for International Gruit Day on Feb 1.

What's I'm seeing now-ishGot to try trapeze for the second time tonight. Thanks to #SANCA staff and volunteers for letting me do it and for talking to @an.avery.a.day while I was flying. (I'm not pictured here. Forgot to ask for a photo. This was the next guy who had way more experience)Scenes from the last week: sour dough bread, Starbucks automatic espresso machine (disassembled), Dom in the garden, beer in the sun.When there's a dragon in your town, you must say hi.Follow up on yesterday's post. The spigot has now been replaced and water is only coming out when (and where) it's supposed to. The pictures of the crawlspace where the work happened were to dark to share.Any plumbing experts out there? I think the split is a problem, but want a second opinion.
