Mr. Chris Schmidt, seed producer extraordinaire, sent me this pic today along with the following message: "Morning Ryan - this is a pic of my farming buddy, Don Shelagowski, walking through the MSU winter malting barley field plot on his farm. Not sure which variety is headed out on his left but there are multiple varieties headed or in the boot.
Field day will be on his farm June 25th." Who else is excited for The Thumb Field Day?? Click on the link in our bio to learn more!

A photo of the Winter Malting Barley Trial plots at KBS, taken yesterday by Dr. Brook Wilke. They'll look much more amber and wavy at the field day on June 20!! (Link to field day info is in our bio)

Field Day Season is here!! The best way to experience barley is to get out in the field! MSU has THREE barley field days coming up in June; check out the link in our bio to learn more!!

@transientartisanales One More Wave Citra double dry hopped double IPA. Nice little showcase for one of my favorite hops. .

Boat Socks NEIPA collaboration between @transientartisanales and @hailstormbrewing. A bit darker than I was expecting, but bright hops, chuggable body, with a slight tinge of bitter on the end. It was almost as if they were able to NEIPA-fy piney hops. Good stuff.

Pretzels and buns this time! I added some soft red wheat malt from Mushroom Head Malt Co. and small amounts of Macon Creek Malt's Munich, Vienna, and malted peas this time. All freshly milled on the Mockmill 100, of course!

A surprise care package from Mushroom Head Malt Co!! Thank you so much for the kind words and awesome gifts! A portion of that fresh soft red wheat malt will be going into the batch of pretzels I make this weekend!

@foundersbrewing Dank Wood. Barrel aged red IPA. Executed well, I just don't think IPAs and bourbon barrels should hook up. Their kids turn out weird.

I love Mosaic hops, and this beer is bursting with them. Well done @oddsideales .

They're not going to win any beauty contests, but these pretzels were made with 50% whole barley flour, freshly ground on the Mockmill 100! And yes, they're already gone... time to make more!!

A little maltier than it's Solid Gold counterpart with a hint of fruity esters. Easy, satisfying drinking for the first 80 degree Michigan day.
Also, can't tell if the can or my pasty white knee is brighter.

When I get a chance, I try to prep lunches on Monday for the rest of the week. This week it's pastured beef arm roast, courtesy of Dr. Brook Wilke, with copious amounts of mushrooms, onions, and... BARLEY!!
