  • 2002: two college buddies, Sauer and Miller, start S&M Brewing ("We've got Beer Whipped!"). Mostly canned-kits...rn2006: The "s" drops out of S&M; the "M" blows out a knee playing hockey, and is left with lots of time to brew. Kit hacks lead to extract brewing.rn2012: New house, new job, new possibilities lead me into all-grain, making my own malt, growing hops (and wine grapes)...and to HBT.

    splenda and b...

    This is one of the many reasons to grow hops. The "green screen" on the fence around my yard
    provides a source of brewing ingredients, and a nice screen for those times when one does not
    want to track...

    If I brew someone else's recipe, it's a cover version. The end product may be superior to the

    originally brewed -...
