Our beautiful Jacobs windmill.
Cracking malted grains
Sparging grains (extracting sugars) in my homemade lauter tun
Boiling malt, hops and spices
Giving spent grains to Peanut (and other animals)
Running my homemade immersion chiller into the wort. Saving the hot water for the greenhouse.
Peanut didn’t like the IPA
Beer fermenting (Last week’s Pale ale conditioning)
This was my own concoction. An American wheat ale with a slight bitterness, loads of aromatic hops, and other fruity spices. We’ll see how it turns out!
Greenhouse now has electricity!
50 new baby chicks.
2 sheep have given birth to 5 lambs, still waiting for 3 more births.
Also, our 6 ducklings.
I thought it would be apropos that the first post be about breaking ground both literally and figuratively. While there is snow on the ground outside, inside our cozy greenhouse, our peppers are finally starting to break ground!
Enjoy the extra day today.
