  • Northern Michigan
  • I am a life long resident of Northern Michigan. A very beautiful place to live but a difficult place to make a living(and getting more so every day).The summers are wonderful but the winters are long. I am 50 miles from the Mackinaw Bridge and 2 hours from the Two hearted River the namesake of the Bells brew.

  • I am new to homebrewing. I have had an interest in it for many years. I started getting serious about getting some equipment last summer.I came across a good deal on some equipment on craigslist in Dec.. I brewed a Coopers Real Ale but used 3lbs lme in place of sugar. It turned out pretty good but don't have any others to compare it to. But you can catch a buzz off it. So it serves the purpose. I am anxious to try more. I have 5 gal of Edworts Apfelwien going for a couple weeks now.

    Barley is not like winter wheat you don't plant it in the fall. Its like oats you plant in the
