First this appeared on our doorstep, in a box from Williams Sonoma.
Then this showed up in our mailbox...
and a week or so later, this.
Then, yesterday, my hubby spent the entire day Home-Brewer-Supply-Shop-Hopping in Austin, looking for things like cheesecloth and vat cleaner.
Looks like Hubby (henceforth to be known as The Vinegarmeister) has finally discovered a good use for all of this!
