Guess what we are working on!

Really, this is my hubby’s project more than mine, though I’ll help in any way I can. We took two trips to a great store in our neighborhood, the Homebrew Exchange on Kilpatrick in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. It’s a great little store, and they have everything you need to make your own beers, kombucha, wine, cheese, soda – basically anything that requires a culture or serum. I took some phone photos there, but I’m not totally sure they’d be cool with me bringing a real camera into the store (or maybe you guys would? Lemme know).

So we walked away with about $50 worth of equipment – a glass 1-gallon jug, a food-grade plastic bucket for sanitizing,  four brown 1-liter bottles, ale yeast and the spices above (at AMAZING prices, I might add. I won’t ever buy vanilla beans at a grocery store again.)

Based on the ingredients above, any guesses as to what Dave is making? Here’s a hint – you may not know what the roots make based on their name, but you would definitely know by their smell.
