  • Friend/ Roomate got me started while I was in the Navy. He was from Maine and had done it a bunch with his dad and uncles as a kid. He bought some supplies and I helped him. It was a bit hodge-podge and only turned out so-so - but I was hooked. I needed to know everything about the process - how it worked, the history, various methods etc.
    I bought a few books (to inlcude Papazian's) and then bought a extract starter kit while stationed in Hawaii. Moved to AG after about 10 batches.

    Took a few year hiatus while in school and traveling for work. Recently reentered the realm of brewing.

    That may be true but I know I know I've seen one or two over there on my last trip. Perhaps
    many do not use the term b/c it was trademarked and they don't want the brand confusion. Thames

    liter.That's as smal...

    I agree wholeheartedly with Tim above. I often use Amarillo & Citra 1oz ea in a 5 gal batch.
    Dry hop in a bag in the keg - taste every day after a week.
