Estes Park Fly Fishing

Melissa casting her fly rod in Estes Park, CO.

On Saturday, we headed up to Estes Park and threw out the flies for a bit in a pond just up the hill. Melissa caught a 10" Greenback Cutthroat, I got skunked!

Pumpkin Brew

Pumpkin from the Hanke Farm steeping with the grains.

Melissa brewed a Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale for the second brew at Sminke Brewing Co. Adam, Elisa, Ethan and Chris (Adam's mom) stopped by to give a helping hand. The yeast was very active about 24hrs after, then calmed down at about 72hrs after. We are going to bottle this one, and then start on the next one!
