The Drunken Urchin?

Remember when I mentioned that I bottled my first batch of home-brewed beer? Well, the bottles are now ready to drink. Below are some pics of the first glass of my own red ale (okay, the second glass - I opened the first bottle a week earlier, before it was really ready - what can I say? I'm weak.) I'm happy to report that I am very pleased with it. How soon until I open my own brew pub? Maybe I'll call it the Drunken Urchin. Free Wi-Fi, of course.

Ain't it great? Soon you'll be mashin' and spargin' with the best of 'em!

Awesome! My labmate and boss homebrew and 2 guys I'm in a band with own a homebrew supply shop. So I'm the guinea pig for everyone's experiments. A great job indeed! I'd love to start too.

If you create it (the Drunken Urchin) I will be there!

We need a place where we can sample all of these great (marine) biologist homebrews in one spot.

@Kevin.. your boss homebrews too? Cool!

We need a marine bloggers conference!

Drunken Urchin sounds like the perfect accompaniment to a tiger beetle hunt.

Adrian - I'm setting up to do my first "mini-mash" tomorrow - a nice (I hope) oatmeal stout, to be ready just in time for St. Patty's Day! Not sure I'll be going full-mash anytime soon though.

KZ - you should - I can't tell you how incredible it is to open the first bottle of your very own brew.

Eric - You'll be at the top of the invite list for the grand opening! And I agree - a Science Blogger BrewFest is in order

Doug - I'll be sure to have some home brew on hand to celebrate the Great Gloucester Tiger Beetle Hunt of 2009!
