Howdy yall Pirate checking at ya.
Due to my crazy busy life I haven’t been able to post much. As i sit back enjoying a beautiful Alaskan Amber, I figured i’d take the time to post my ponders, and update on whats been going on. Well, first I doubt many people are reading this right now, but I feel that it’s well worth to document everything from the beginnng to always look back and see how many times things changed/evolved for the better. That being said, after numerous skitches, measurments, and internal strugle on how I want to build this tier set up, the final design is accomplished. Materials are being collected and on next days off build will be undergoing. I know i’ve been mentioning it now for almost two months, but build will finally commence shortly and I feel like a little kid on christmas morning thinking about it. I know this is only going to be first of many builds, but with baby steps, passion, drive, and a dream I know that I will obtain my ultimate goal. The beauty about brewing (and cooking) is there is no right or wrong and you can try anything just as long as you can handle failure and consetructive (some time un-constructive) critism. You have to be thick skin, not get attached to one idea, and man up if it taste like shit.
With all that being said, besides finally finishing plans and gathering neccesary materials, I have been doing large amounts of research. It sometimes drives Courtney nuts, but what I always tell her is ” walt had a dream….it started with a mouse…..mine starts with nautical stars, pirate ships and our dog”. Smoked beers, dark beers, fruit beers….I started with 10 base recipes (all of which will and must be tested) and as I write this post two more in the works. I intend on using not only my beer knowledge, but my culinary background to create unique awesome beers that (hopefully) will be distrubuted throughout the land.
It’s sunday night…(almost time for Dexter) and my goal is two finish these two plus two more recipes before my tv show starts. Remember, keep on brewing no matter what.
