It’s been a while. So long, in fact, that I forgot my login details!

The last time I made a Coconut Porter/Stout was back in 2009 so I’m really looking forward to this one.

I have big plans for brewing this summer. More on that coming soon. In the meantime, if there’s anyone who found this blog who is looking for information on home brewing in Japan, Beer in Japan has just updated their resource page: Homebrewing in Japan – Beer in Japan
