Today seems like a good day…

…to make beer.

The first day of the Fall season finds me brewing a batch of Texas Blonde Ale.  I picked up the kit when I was in Austin from the fine folks at Austin Homebrew Supply.

I've been making mostly extract batches lately, so this time I choose to make a mini-mash.  It always takes longer due to the added time for the mash.  I'm not sure if it makes that much of a difference.  If I like this kit, I'll try the all extract next time.

And, I need to plan my next batch of Abe's Important Stout.  It's a great beer to have around for the colder months.

The weather is beautiful, the schedule of the day is open, and I am going to relax and make beer.
