Beer, 10 Days Later

Ah, even a slight rise in the fickle fickleness of crypto is enough to compel me to make a post. This time, I'm showing off my batch of beer which was started 10 days ago (September 2nd). After a week and a half of fermentation, the beer is mostly complete. At least one bucket is. This was a 10 gallon batch, so I split it

Beer Brewing vs Productivity

For the first time since coming back to Florida in mid August, and the first time since having left Florida back at the beginning of June, I am brewing beer.
