    ABOUT ME

  • I always found our American history to be intriguing..American moonshiners past and present, the Whiskey Rebellion,the folly that was (and still is) Prohibition. I began to really enjoy local beers (Bells Beer in Comstock/Kalamazoo, MI) and at the same time began to garden and grow/can/pickle my own food. So, I thought, "If I can grow my own food, I can make my own beer." I actually made 5 gallons of hard cider as my first brew of choice, because it was fall and SW Michigan has many cider options available. It turned out very strong and too much of an astringent taste, but that didn't stop me from enjoying every last damn drop!

    Bridge port 1 30th anniversary IPA. It tasted like skunky, beefy malt liquor of an IPA. I drank
    one bottle after I already had a few beers in me and didn't care for it. I tried drinking a
    second one l...

    ...still haven't bottled it yet...or tasted it in months for that matter. I moved a few months
    ago and just haven't taken the time to do anything with it, even though I've brewed some beers

    Not bad for a first attempt, and god damn it was significantly less money than buying one at a
    homebrew supply store!

    It's been over 4 months and I haven't yet cracked this bucket open yet. I recently moved and
    had to transport it in the car. That was about 2 weeks ago so it should be settled back down by
    now. I will...

    Correct. Never boil cider. It is unnecessary and will make your cider forever hazy.Sent from my
