  • Always wanted to brew, my brother-in-law just opened a homebrew store so he hooked me up. Got a turkey fryer off Craigslist and a 20-qt Martha Stewart SS brewpot. Now I'm just trying to figure out how it all works!
  • I like porters and stouts, so that's probably what I'll concentrate on.

  • Posted in thread: What is your favourite beer with pizza? on 06-30-2016 at 09:05 PM
    I like maltier beers with my pizza, a nice California Common or a Trappist ale. Hoppy IPAs have
    too much "contrast" with the dough and meats I usually get.

    I used whatever crush the LHBS had. They kindly crushed the grain there as I don't have a mill

  • Posted in thread: What breweries or beers to try while in California? on 06-30-2016 at 04:27 PM
    If yoyre close to the town of Chico then you need to check out Sierra Nevada. Kind of the

    in the bay area...

    can't adjus...

    Picked up a batch of Founder's Rubaeus, on the enthusiastic recommendations of the guys at the
    beer store. I don't think they drink much. I enjoyed the first one, but the second went down
    slow and I w...

    If you drove off without your gascap, sorry about that, I had quite a collection by the time I
    quit :)I remember coming home from a party in college with a friend of mine. We were both
    hung-over as he...

    I don't boil my starter, I just get the temp between 175-200 and hold it there for 10-15
    minutes, turn off the heat and let it cool to pitching temp on its own.Several times I've been
    tempted to simpl...

    Manufacturer and model # for the thermometer? Lots of remote probes aren't waterproof, and I'd
    like to get one that is.It's the Thermoworks Chef Alarm.
