    ABOUT ME

  • I love beer and have only recently started brewing (small batches), and it has turned out phenomenally so far. I have a film theory degree and a writing degree, so naturally I work at a restaurant. I love movies and occasionally will get sucked into a video game. Great wife, great (soon-to-be) three year old, and a great newborn.
  • Good movies,good TV,good conversation (best when philosophical). Oh,I love cooking.
  • Server/bartender and lab assistant
  • Ben Agee
  • Lots of crap. I'd say my favorite all time bands are Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Blur, nofx and others I can't remember. But most genres are palatable to me, so there are probably favorites I didn't wear CDs out on as a teenager.
  • No.
  • No.
  • Non-fiction. The internet is kind of making this obsolete, but books are still great for specialty stuff.
  • Later.
  • I have an exciting recipe I came up with yesterday and will be brewing Sunday very loosely based on someone's on here "yakima blonde ale." It's a totally different animal than the original. I think I posted about it, but if not, more to come.

  • Posted in thread: Big stout fermentation idea on 12-20-2013 at 09:19 AM
    I brewed a stout (five gallons) that beersmith estimates around 15% abv almost two weeks ago.
    Fermentation has seemed healthy (nottingham starter) so far, but I lost about a gallon to
    blow-off in the ...

    one guy's responses to this make me feel insecure in different ways. i'll always put, up front,
    that i'm an idiot about most things. i am intentionally being as racy as my ocd allows, and you
    wouldn't...

    haha, okay. i do sound like a nutjob sometimes, i'll admit. i could tell you were not freddy
    after i thought about the stuff in your post. felt bad for discrediting him by even
    entertaining the possib...

    yeah, man, a lot of the stuff i learned researching was from these forums, before i was even a
    member. i know it's probably just a pipe dream, but i'm a 32 year old bartender with two
    degrees and two ...

    i feel a little embarrassed. i wasn't being nasty toward anyone, more being self-conscious and
    defensive about the "freshness" thing. however, the way i apparently came off was a result of
    my almost s...

    is that freddy pimpin' biergarten? anyway, i bet full sail also didn't use a turkey fryer with
    aluminum brew kettle, it probably wasn't their first batch, and it's one of the "only available
    for 90 da...

    saw and bought the new full sail FS pub series ("nut brown ale") today. i've always liked full
    sail because they seem under the radar (in Oklahoma), as far as bars and restaurants are
    concerned, but t...

    had a little delay on the brew date. grandad emergency. brewed it tonight, and i don't think
    it's probably gonna be close to what anyone who actually thinks of blonde ales thinks of blonde
    ales. it's ...

    i don't know why five malts. i was bouncing ideas around with the dude at high gravity, and
    these are what i decided on. i've loved to cook food since i was about 14, and as i've honed
    and gotten good...
