Yeah I got Brewing Classic Styles from my mom for Christmas and I used the Dunkelweisen recipe from that book.

Im trying to keep the fermentation temp down to keep those esters in check.

My wife told me that I need to either slow down the brewing, or find more friends...

Four more cornies arrived from the Chi Company, I got a new traceable thermometer for Christmas with a waterproof 10' probe, and we just tapped a fresh keg of Oatmeal Stout, ahhhhhhhhh, life is good.

I love this...

Its amazing. I fell so far into this hobby, and I know already even like 8 months in that I will be doing this the rest of my life. Its also funny to see how each of you are all totally obsessed with this hobby, because its consumed my life the same way and everybody thinks im nuts haha but im not the only one

A homebrewer vs a non home-brewer is much like a smoker vs a non-smoker. Its not just something you enjoy, it becomes part of you!!

This is an amazing hobby. I have to force myself not to make homebrewing/beer the topic of every discussion I have with anyone. It does happen quickly too. I bottled last Sunday, brewed another batch on Wednesday night and bought ingredients for another batch to brew tomorrow, this afternoon.

it's only a problem when you love brewing more than drinking

and it makes good christmas presents.

The beer you make is much better than what you usually can find in the store. and is cheaper.

What I love most is changing up my brews. I use the same grain bill for my IPA's change up adjuncts and hops to get different beers. Bump up same IPA's and make IIPA's. Same with my Brown Ale. I was getting so bored with beers and having to buy different kinds of brews at the store not to mention 10 bucks plus a sixer. In 30+ batches I have yet to duplicate any 100%.
Cheers
