Welcome, this blog is dedicated to the art and science of growing malting and brewing your own beer. I’ve been a homebrewer and gardener for years and finally my two favorite hobbies have merged into one big all consuming obsession, to brew beer with barley and hops that I’ve grown myself. Why bother? you may ask when you can buy a 50lb bag of malt for $30. There are plenty of reasons, it’s fun (yes I have a strange idea of fun) I like learning the science behind things (especially beer) and maybe because you can get 50 lbs of malt for $30. Is it wrong to think that this is too cheap? Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed making them.
