Well - I finally did it...the batch that I intended to brew over two months ago has finally been started. So...if all goes according to plan, two months or so from now, I'll have a bunch of Dark Raspberry Stout in the bottle. We'll see how it turns out...

The rest of the weekend was pretty relaxed. We enjoyed a quiet Christmas Eve supper on Friday along with a candlelight service at church. Saturday, I left for Willmar around six when Meghan left for work to spend the day with my family. I stayed out there till after supper and then headed back here. We ended up going over to the Kuipers' house for the evening, which was a great time, as we hadn't seen them for a while.
