My Sparkling Beer finished up a couple weeks ago and is already running low (summertime does that) so I started my 16th brew last weekend, which is a coffee beer from an adapted Porter recipe.
The coffee beers I made previously were all Stouts, which is darker, and more like a Guinness. I chose Porter this time to have a slightly lighter beer to compliment the lighter Brazilian coffee beans I had on hand. If all goes well, we will be bottling the beer this weekend and will end up with a dark amber, Brazilian coffee beer that has a bit of a nutty taste.
Over the 4th of July we took the new car on our first family roadtrip, which was a nice 14-hour car ride to Grand Lake, CO and back. Kaden didn’t mind the ride too much until the 13th hour or so each way. BEER mom has a vacation recap and pictures on his site and hers. I will post video once I covert the DVD.
Here are a few of my favorites:
