It's been over a year since my last confession.

I've been brewing. On and off. I've been getting frustrated by the lack of perfection I've managed to achieve. But I've been learning.

I still don't have a brewery. It's still kitchen based. But I've met a lot of brewers and worked in a lot of breweries. One of these magicians allowed me to brew a proper batch of beer on his kit. A 600 litre professional brew.

It was special, exciting, tense. I still don't know how it's going to turn out. Whether we were able to scale up my pilot brew to a full scale brew successfully.

It looks good. It smells amazing. But it's not ready yet. My first born is still waiting to be born.

I have a name though: Memento. A reminder of things to come. A memory of all the hard work that's been.

I'll let you know when.
