With several writing projects to keep me busy during the remaining months of winter, I'm not likely to have much time for anything else. Although I may be able to tackle a project that involves lots of waiting. Something like brewing a beer, for instance.
As luck would have it, a box containing a malted barley blend, Fuggle hops, yeast, and a bunch of home brewing equipment arrived at my door yesterday. Theoretically, if I follow the enclosed instructions carefully, I'll end up with a quaffable Chocolate Maple Porter in about three weeks. It's an exciting prospect, and one that I'll be posting about again very soon.
