  • I once won an argument with myself. I have been described as a handsome square jawed lunatic! A rattlesnake bit me last year, it died of poisoning. rnrnI have a word for men whom can't lift their own body weight, women. A man should be able to process wild game, know how to woo a lady, and feel reasonably comfortable of the outcome when squaring off with 2 attackers. A man should also know either good whisky or good beer, know how to cook well, be well read, be passionate about what life has to offer, be humble, never be a braggart, be comfortable with who and what he is, be able to move beyond and learn from his failures, be good with at least one of the following handy disciplines; electrician, mechanic, or carpentry.

  • I watched beerfest and googled homemade beer. It's all a blur from there! I'm an AG brewer. I'm neither a hophead nor a malt crazy... I'm both. If it's a well made brew I'll probably enjoy it. Not a big drinker but love good bier and food. As such I take as much pleasure in a 3.5% bier as I do a 10.5%.

    As for the pot ... seems like a good deal for electric and serviceable for gas. For the record
    I use a 10 gal aluminum pot more often than not even though I own keggles. The thin nature of

    I think the most important things are the fundamentals of sanitation, patience, pitching the
    right amount of yeast, and maintaining proper fermentation temps. The other important thing to
    doing it con...
