In Wine there is Wisdom, in Beer there is Freedom, in Water there is Bacteria – A Winemakers journey to Freedom

Spent BarleyTwo-and-a-half years ago I wrote a blog about my visit to Craft Beer Rising, at that time I had been a winemaker travelling around the world creating fermented beverages out of grapes in various different countries.  As anyone who has ever done a vintage knows, it can be a very full-on, stressful time. When the grapes are ready decisions must be made quickly and you are at the mercy of the weather; an incredible, powerful frenzied high, then it is all over and life gets back to normal.

Beer on the other hand can be made all year, there is time pressures of a different kind, and certainly in terms of ingredients, there is a bit more artistic freedom in its creation.  It was this that had been fuelling my interest in learning how the other half lived.  In my blog of 2.5 years ago I wrote ‘And who knows, maybe there is some brewing in my future …’

Well that time has come, and here I will document my journey into the world of brewing
