|Where it all begins. An idea.|
We started the day by sampling the many grains Rowan had on hand. We instantly found great value in this, not only as people interested in making beer, but also as beer drinkers. Tasting the ingredients gave us a deeper insight into the flavors we have been tasting all these years. It was like things we hadn't even known were a mystery finally made sense.
For a long time it was mostly just sit and wait, but at a certain point, things started to go pretty quickly.
And with the addition of a little soju and the yeast, bam, an IPA ready to ferment and eventually bottle. That's sure a lot of beer.
On the long subway ride home we couldn't help but feel we had just witnessed the whole point of this expat life we have chosen. It's about the stories we create with those around us and save in our memories for future lazy Sundays. The stories that age into rich and vibrant tales of adventure and turn us all into heroes in someones mind.
