Bring May flowers… flowers I hope to plant, at some point or another, after Nick and I move into our house at the end of the month! After searching daily for a house that fit all of our requirements, we finally found a nice one to rent and we’re very excited to start this next stage of our relationship. I won’t get all sappy on here, but with the direction our relationship is going, we decided this is the next logical step :) It’s going to be a great house for entertaining family and friends and it’s plenty spacious for all of our needs, especially storing (and expanding) Nick’s homebrewing equipment. He’s already planning on getting a 14 cubic foot chest freezer to make a new keezer, and then using the current seven cubic foot keezer solely for fermenting. And I’ve already been on Pinterest planning DIY projects and taking note of quick and simple organization tips that I never would have thought of before. What did we ever do before that website existed?

And now for the beer news update:

  • The Beer Tax Reform Act of 2013 passed the Senate and House Finance Committees today and it will come to a full floor vote within the week — great news!
  • It’s good to see there are some legislators in Alabama with some sense! A new bill to legalize homebrewing in Alabama passed through the House today on a 58-33 vote. Mississippi homebrewers got good news last month, so let’s hope the same for their neighbors. However, after reading some of the comments from AL representatives today (and judging from a previous debate on this same topic), Alabama may still be a good while away from legalizing homebrewing…

Well, off to start sorting, organizing, packing, etc. — cheers!
