New Brew Assistant in the Making!

I have been rather MIA from my brew hobby due to a new member of the family - Our golden retriever puppy, Avery!

Avery the golden retriever

My wife grew up with many dogs, but her (still lived with her parents) golden retriever passed away last year.  After a grieving period we decided we wanted a new dog of our own.  We went back to the breeder my wife's family had gotten all their golden's from and had to wait almost a year for a pup.

Avery is 11 weeks old tomorrow and is adjusting very well to his new home.  I haven't introduced him to the brewery yet, but once he shows a little more restraint in other areas of the house he will become my brewing assistant!

Brew News:

Prior to getting Avery I was able to make my first, and sad to say only, batch on the new system.  It was a session IPA using Cascade, Simcoe, Centennial and Citra hops - so you know its delicious.  I hope to provide a recipe update post with tasting notes and obligatory pictures soon.  Stay tuned!

Until then, Avery says "Relax, don't worry, and have a homebrew!"
