I’m sitting here in my brewery starting to work on Brew Five of my 100 Brew Challenge. I know I haven’t done a good job of keeping up to date with my last two brews. There are plenty of reasons for that. Whether it’s work, a social life, taking care of my son, or engaging in other hobbies, it has stopped me from documenting my brewing here.
However, more importantly, I’ve slowly been trying to figure out what I am trying to do with this blog. So far I’ve been writing it like a play by play explanation of my brewing activities. And, to be perfectly honest, that’s not what I want this to be. I’m not a serious brewer. I brew because it is fun and I like what I make more than most the things I can buy. That’s it. So a technical journal is not what I need to do.
Instead, I’m going to make this a lot more simple. Less pictures of the procedure, more of the result. Less about the how, more about the why. Less about the technical detail, more about beer. How does that sound?
