Ich habe mir versprochen: Dass Ich von jetzt an nur das Reinheitsgebot

(Very Loosly Translated: I'm going to make the switch to brewing all grain
beers -- mashing, sparging, etc...)

Today I ordered ~30# of Klages malted barley, some Munich, some
roasted unmalted barley, and a sparger. I used the last of my extract
syrup on the *slavian beer this weekend, and then succumbed to a
long-suppressed desire to be a masher :-}.

The stuff will arrive in a couple of days from Great Fermentations of
Santa Rosa, at which time I intend to step-mash my way to ale Nirvana
(can't tell I've been sampling my wares, can you?)

BTW: has anyone tasted Anchor Steam's Christmas Ale yet? I had a
bottle this weekend, and it is wonderful. I think their magic
ingredient is roasted unmalted barley. It may just be necessary to try
a Christmas ale as the first all-grain recipe.
