Checking in

Been a little quiet here lately, but yesterday brought some fun stuff:
- stir plate construction continued
- grains purchased for 2 brews
- first liquid yeast purchase...though I'm already questioning the strain choice.

In other news, the big burner has been, uh, put on the back burner for a bit. Getting some other upgrade supplies soon from a local guy and waiting for a credit card points discount to show up next month to make the big burner purchase a bit easier on the wallet.  ...but it's gonna happen!  I'm very excited for shorter wait times and ability to do bigger batches!

Also - 3 days away from cracking my first Cascadian brew and REALLY looking forward to it.  It ended up coming in at 7% and smells awesome!

Until then, here's the before picture of my little stir plate project.
