I am happy to discover LILEKS.COM is still online. It was a regular destination when I first started going online, back in the 20th Century. I loved their collection of old motel postcards. The comments are still hilarious. The website has expanded the content with lots of new stuff.

A section of 1970's history is called Welcome to Hell. There's The Story of Bread and The Grooviest Motel in Wisconsin. The Institute of Official Cheer still features The Gallery of Regrettable Food.

Happy Yeast [Jul. 30th, 2015|10:38 am]

Since I apparently don't have enough to do, last night I started a new batch of grape wine. Previous experiments with grape wine have been very successful. I'm using Montrachet yeast with this batch, which should make it rich and full-bodied, like a chardonnay. The fermenter is happily bubbling away this morning.

Pale Ale [Jul. 28th, 2015|09:02 am]

I got the pale ale bottled last night. Out of five gallons, I ended up with 51 12-oz bottles. This batch seems to have taken longer than usual. Or maybe it just seems that way because I dry-hopped when I racked it into the secondary fermenter. I hope it turns out okay. I'll know in a couple of weeks.
