Homebrewing!

It’s been ages since I’ve done as much homebrewing as I’ve been doing lately, and I’ve been meaning to write a bit about it. Here’s what’s been brewing:

I’ve got some ideas for at least two other beers I want to brew, if I get the chance: a rhubarb wheat ale, using about eight cups of rhubarb I have in the freezer (I’m thinking a Kölsch yeast), and some sort of "fresh hop" harvest ale. I picked four ounces worth (after drying) of hops from my mom’s hop plant, and the idea of making a high gravity, fresh hop beer (which seems to be the trend this season) is enticing.
