Brew it up

Nothing like turning your garage into a makeshift beer brewing operation. Robin spent the good part of the day yesterday brewing up his first batch of "all grain beer". His days of buying beer kits are over apparently, and we've moved onto the real deal - buying the grain, hops, yeast and following through with the whole process. 

Our friend Trevor is an experienced brew master and was happy to pass on some of his knowledge to Robin. Amongst the USU crew here there is a true appreciation for the finer things in life and is evident in how folks put effort into everything they make  - from pots, to food, to beer! 

And heh, yet another skill he'll take back to Canada from grad school.
