Chris is currently working on what I think will turn out to be magic in beer form: a raspberry jalapeno wheat beer.

He brewed it up last Sunday and just racked it out into the secondary fermenter yesterday, poured over four pounds of raspberries and I don’t know how many jalapenos. I’ll let him wax poetic about the process (we actually blew the lid off the primary fermenter with our first use of a yeast starter, and Chris created a flash fire and had a minor boil over – BREWING BEER IS SO EXCITING) and the end product.

In the meantime, here’s what my boys were up to last weekend. Chris brewing away:

I sure do like those two. And here they are today. We have a clean baby, family in town, a Discovery show on TV, sunshine, fresh coffee, and a good day ahead of us. Happy Sunday!

(P.S. We also discovered this past week that our baby is still a giant. He’s in the 95th percentile or above for height, weight, and head circumference. At 9 weeks, he’s 15 lbs., 4 oz. Go breast milk!).
