Regardless, I'm going to try. I've armed myself with another 3 lbs of dried malt extract, a full pound of grains (Maris Otter, Cara Amber, and Malted Rye(!)), and whole Fuggles (2oz.) and Cascade (1oz.) hops and will make an attempt to formulate something interesting and drinkable out of this kit. It's a crazy idea that just might work.
Unless there are huge objections, Sunday is the day. As always, there will be HKAB with something like waffles early (suggestions for food and/or movie selections are welcome), followed by a boil beginning sometime around noon-thirty. Depending on interest and time, I may get totally crazy and try my hand at making some soft cheese too.
I know it's shortish notice, but if you can make it I'd love the company. I'm more than happy to send you directions or arrange to shuttle you from Davis.
