  • Was stationed in Germany with the US Army, loved the beer but unable to buy it here. On or about 1994 I saw an ad for mail order homebrew supplies "make any beer you like" the ad stated. My first setup is still in use today. Back in 1994 I purchased my first homebrew kit. I brewed 5 batches each one exceedlingly more sour than the other, not much support back then. I hung it up until a little over 2 years ago when a new LHBS opened 3 minuetes from my work, the guys there have been great. The first second & third thing I learned was sanitize, sanitize, sanitize. Since then I've successfully brewed alot of extract & specialty grain kits. Recently got into all grain thanks to my brother. So far about 12 all grain batches are or have been in the bottle, most recently added a barley crusher to the family, no turning back now baby.

    Kegged for the first time today. I gotta ask myself "What took me so long"?

  • Posted in thread: Is all grain is that much better or is it just that you have become a better brewer? on 09-11-2014 at 02:16 PM
    Done both, and have made good beer with both. I prefer all grain because, for me, its more funI
    2nd that.
