welcome back Twood.

I too just opened my first batch in 10 years or more. I also just put my second into primary! woohoo. I already have my 3rd batch (Pliny the Elder clone) ready to brew.

There is sooooooo much more information and equipment available today than there was back in the early 90s.

congrats. Best get working on that lager ASAP if you want it done by Christmas. My tap ph is over 8 so I'll need to use my RO filter for any lagers I do.

Well first one is bubbling away and i have water preboiled and hardened for next batch maybe tomorrow night a oatmeal stout will be born. then i will try a lager when i get some lighter extract i should try to maly some barley i have in grainery 3 feed sacks of barley i harvested off a field i planted used rest for feed for cattle.
saving rest for if i try to brew again. i can malt it and dry and toast with the free gas wouldn't be half bad and maybe it will be special if malt is that fresh. Might be worth a try.

well my wife has put in a new order for 2000 more cases for next few years.
it has turned out very good according to her. She is addictied to it that batch will not last long at 4 bottles a night. my biggest worry is not having same malt available to make more when this 5 gallon bucket is finished. it is very old briess amber from early 90's been opened since 96 and sat for 9 years till i brewed this batch. 8 years ago some guys from our old club brewed a fist place beer with some of it from a different bucket at the trash competion in pittsburgh PA. Malt was from what was the old meander brewing some of what was left after it went under not sure how we got it it was passed form one to another since others were all AG brewers they didn't want it so we ended up with it.
