  • I started brewing young. In 11th grade, I was researching a paper on King Arthur, and found a website detailing the method to make mead. I was in love. Two of my friends joined in with me and we started brewing with a simple kit with 5 gallon glass carboys. When college came around, we went our separate ways, and brewing went on hiatus. Twelve years since I last brewed, in 2011, I finally have a house with a basement for brewing, and I am back in the saddle. Living in Michigan, the self-proclaimed "Great Beer State" has its advantages. With 150+ breweries in the state, and three very good brew stores within 20 miles, I am very lucky. Lift a glass with me; I am thirsty.

    Lol. I was unclear. I need to find mine! I think they are here somewhere.Ah. My mistake. Well,
    if you can't find them, you should be able to replace easily.

    I had the very same issue with my first brews. I was doing partial boils on a glass top
    electric range, and getting similar results. There was just not enough power to get the rolling
    boil that I need...

    Out of curiosity, was this inspired by Oddside's Bean Flicker?

    I sure would love to win the grand prize, but I would definitely be happy with the American
    Honey Wheat all-grain kit. That sounds tasty and would be ready for the start of spring.
