  • Me and two friends have been brewing for a year. Started with one extract beer, moved directly to partial mash. Now we're doing mead and all grain. We brew a lot of imperial stouts, bocks, and heavier beers, but not exclusively.

    We have 4 glass carboys and a home made setup made out of 3 turkey deep fry kits. We're in the process of cutting up kegs to make a 15 gallon setup soon. (already have kegs, and a 15gal glass fermentor, but trying to read up on how to make mash tun and such)
  • A lighter amber ale, an all grain imperial stout to resemble our previous partial mash, and anything that comes up
  • Mt hood Pilsner
    Overhopped IPA
  • a few meads
  • Guniess style garbage
  • a 10% stout, a few scotish ales, and a lighter beer

    even if you planted them two months ago, you don't get much the first year. My plants this year
    are already larger than they were at the end of the season last year. Last year being the first
    season, ...
