Default Hello from Michigan

Hi all, been surfing a while - actually most questions that I google come back to this forum, so I figured it was a logical step to join. Just started brewing last year in November, did 6 batches with extract/specialty grains before building my mash lauter tun. Since then, have done 2 all-grain recipes, and have loved it. Most recipes I've done so far come from Adventures in Homebrewing, mostly because I can drive to the store and it's like Disneyland.

Currently I've got a Widak Saison fermenting (1 week in secondary), a Maerzen/Oktoberfest fermenting (1 week in primary, first lager!), and a Bell's Hopslam Clone bottle-conditioning (2 weeks). I also washed/harvested my first yeast off the saison, so I'm curious to see how well that will go - will definitely use a starter for the next saison, and all 4 pint jars have some white yeast settled on the bottom, but in various amounts and I'm not sure if it's enough. Time will tell.

Finally, I was able to convince my SO that my birthday gift will be me building a kegerator. After that, I hope I'll be good for a while and will just be able to brew. We all know that's not true though...

Anyway, that's all about me so far. Maybe a bit too long for a 'welcome' thread. Gonna go have a beer now!

Cheers! With all that variety cooking up you must have some handle on fermentation temp control, so good times. Hope to hear of your results from the AG setup.

Welcome to the forum. I think you'll find that Michigan is well represented here.
