I recently published a couple episodes of my Ancient Art Podcast exploring beer and wine in Ancient Egypt. While my Homebrew Blog resides in the same household as my Ancient Art Podcast, I nonetheless feel inclined to mention those episodes here.

Massive success! Despite periods of worry, hand-wringing, incessant laments, batch #1 has proven to taste like … beer! And a fine one, at that. Frankly, my lifelong habit for setting my expectations low might have had something to do with it, but I wholeheartedly endorse this manner.
A few weeks ago, after considerable deliberation and research, I finally took the plunge into the fabulous world of home brewing. A few minutes ago, I after much angst and low-set expectations, I finally cracked open my first bottle of home brew … and it tastes brilliant!
