For those of you who read regularly, you know that I am a bit obsessed with brewing and really enjoy the process.  In addition, I make no secret of the fact that I love food.  I absolutely adore new types, varieties, and flavors of food.  To be more specific, I especially love foods that involve some form of yeast or bacterial production.

Well, the time for confession has come.  My new obsession is with making sausages in general, but particularly, I am obsessed with making fermented sausages.  Even more particularly, I am interested in making salamis.  Part of my not writing as much lately, aside from being out of town and working 13 hour days, is that I’ve been curling up with some good books.  Nothing unwinds me like reading about making something.

Please consider this my preemptive post about the impending sausage making series that I will be writing in the coming months.  Of course, beer will be incorporated, paired, and appreciated.  Please feel free to add your thoughts at any point.
