    ABOUT ME

  • Started brewing in August of 2010 with extract for about a year. Switched to all grain and never looked back. Brew to season and love trying new recipes and styles. My local club is the White Street Brewers Guild of Wake Forest, NC. Cheers! -Chris

  • Classic 80's rock, 90's alliterative
  • Triangle Homebrewers
  • I brewed extract for about a year and then migrated to All-Grain. I worked up a Corona Mill mounted it to a bucket, converted a 48qt Coleman cooler for my MLT (with hot water heater SS mesh hose with copper coil inside), and a 9G brew bot. I've moved outside for brews on my Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer set up (SWMBO is very happy about that).rnrnAlways reading magazine and web articles to better my brew practices. Love this addition/hobby. -Chris

    Thought I'd close the loop on this one. The keg kicked a couple days ago. I'll be making this
    one again! It was a very clean beer from a yeast perspective and was more of a malt dominate
    flavored beer...

    I thought I had a stalled fermentation. I made a Riverwest Stein Clone (see below) with an OG
    of 1.047 ( I missed my OG by 10 points but I digress). I read this month's Zymurgy where it
    talks about st...

    Thanks. My club has a competition in the spring at a small brewery. Winner gets to brew on

    I think in a recent zymurgy, I saw a recipe for a Baltic Porter with Wyeast 2112 California
    Lager yeast. It got me thinking...Last fall and winter, I brewed an Oktoberfest and Bock with
    Wyeast 1007 Ge...
