Welcome to the Summer of the Single American 1056 Yeast Packet!  My intention is to use a single yeast packet for almost of my beer brewing this summer.  How?  Easy, just reuse the yeast cakes from previous batches and replicate new batches from small samples of the existing batches.

Organizers of this year's Ride of Silence here in Minneapolis got a BIG jolt as yet another rider was killed the morning of the ride.  Dennis Dumm died after being run over by a semi-truck. 

By the time the ride started, the route was changed to allow a visit to the site if the accident at 14th and Portland Aves in Minneapolis.  About 120 riders participated in a ride that also visited the sites of two other riders that were killed in traffic deaths last fall.

After a nice weekend, Chandra and I decided to treat ourselves to a real burger and fires at the Wagners Drive-in in Saint Louis Park - WRONG! Yet another cultural landmark is destined for the bulldozer.  It's getting a "Intergalactic Retro-Futuristic Makover".
