“Plum Out of Control” Plum Ale

My coworker, Sandy, came to me one day asking if I had any use for a bunch of plums, because her trees were over loaded. I had been wanting to try the recipe for “Aplomb of an Ale” from The Homebrewer’s Recipe Guide for a while now. She brought 3 boxes of Ozark plums to…

International Women’s Day Brew

A few months ago Danii messaged me asking if I’d want to do a homebrew to celebrate International Women’s Day. She said she’d invited Jessica as well, it would be her very first time to brew. I, of course, said yes! I was so excited to get the chance to learn from someone who owned their own brewery, and get to spend the day with two awesome women and their little ones.

#HomebrewWednesday

BrewDog’s Beer Geek Awards winner!

This summer I entered this photo of Jayson brewing his Sierra Nevada clone from Brewhound, in BrewDog’s Beer Geek Awards (US). And I won! In September, Jayson and I will be going to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. We’ll only be there for one day but I’m so excited and honored that my…
