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-ishTonight's 8 strand challah braidFinished making my largest batch of kimchi and sauerkraut. Two very large cabbages (15 lbs each) turned into 2 gallons of sauerkraut and 2 gallons of kimchi. We should be set for a while. #FermentationIt was apple pressing day. We collected 180-200lbs of free apples from around the neighborhood, built a press, built a scratter (garbage disposal), and press around 14 gallons of juice. Six gallons are getting fermented, some is getting turned into apple molasses, and the rest is to drink. We toasted the occasion with some cider we made last year with commercial cider juice.Circumnavigated Mercer Island in my kayak today. It was the farthest I've ever paddled. I wanted to see if (with more training) I could do @seventy48 and now I think I could. I also think I'm going to be sore tomorrow. #SummerProjects #kayakingThe #DunlapCommunityFridge is getting painted. Thanks @snys.era206 It looks amazing!
