|I did not eat all this :)|
We picked up a map of Jupiter, and thought it was funny we looked like tourist in the city we live in. Bethlehem doesn't have maps. Oh and each meal is served with a juice, in what looked like a shot glass.
|Huck was so amazed by this bottle|
|Where is the Beach?|
|I can take a nice picture.|
|Huck, not so much|
Now the fun stuff... Beer and Football!! We watched UGA beat Tech today :) and every other football game that came on, I think. Huck started a batch of his version of Sweetwater 420. Since our garage is in another building, I agreed to let him make it inside. It is very strong and the whole house smells like a brewery afterwards.
Spent Grains straining. Some of these will be used to make yummy stuff later.
Just like steeping tea. All the flavor is in the liquid in the bottom of the bucket.
This is what causes the fermentation in the beer.
This will ferment for 7-10 days.
Now back to the Spent Grains.
A few years ago me and Huck went to a Brewery that served Spent Grain bread with the grains that are leftover from the brewing process. It was one of the best breads I have ever tried (or it may have just been the homemade whipped butter). I keep some of the grains to dry and use for baking and cooking with later. I spread them on a sheet pan and placed them in a 175 degree oven for around 7 hours or until dried. I have a few ideas for them. Stay tuned for recipes.
I also made Laundry Detergent today (I had a busy day) Thanks again Pinterest. I decided to make my own after I seen the supplies on sale at Publix. It cost me $7 to make 4 batches, and I still have more Borax and Arm and Hammer leftover. The cost per load is less then $0.03 because I was able to buy everything on sale. Much cheaper then $0.20 and up for store made detergent.
Homemade Laundry Detergent
- 1 Cup Borax
- 1 Cup Arm and Hammer
- 1 Bar Ivory or Fels-Naptha (I used on of each)
- Grate Bar soap using grater or food processor.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Add 1 Tbsp to each load of laundry.
Tomorrow is Huck's Birthday!!
