  • I began homebrewing a few years ago after returning to Salt Lake City after 6 years in the Navy, stationed in San Diego most of that time. rnrnThe local availability of good and interesting beers is very limited and very expensive. I have always loved good beer and have always sought out interesting varieties beyond light lagers. The only realistic way to do that here is to brew my own.

  • I'm currently making 10g all grain batches. I have the luxury of a walk out basement which provides 4 levels from my main level deck to a table on the patio, to ground level and then below ground level into my basement. All in all about 18ft from the HLT to the fermentation chamber. I can gravity feed right into the fermentor sitting in a chest freezer in my basement.rnrnI have focused mostly on English styles, an ESB being by far my most brewed beer.

    few other brew clubs in the area and was wondering if any of them were accepting new members.

    Maybe. It depends on yeast selection and what you want out of your yeast. Some strains may not
    ferment at all at 10C. Stick within the manufacturer's suggested range.Also, I may be
    misreading you, but...

    If it's liquid yeast then not only is there a way to check viability but by doing this
    viability test you will probably make a significant step forward in the quality of your beer.As
    the previous post...

    Another 6pm-6am worker checking in. Absolutely I'll have a beer after a 12 hour shift. I do try

    week, but I'...
