Welcome to Life Fermented, a blog about home brewing, brew science, and other fermented goodies.  I post every other Wednesday, sometimes with bonus posts on the off-week.  If you like what I am doing here, follow me, spread the word, and comment to get involved!  Questions are always welcome.

Happy fermenting!
