  • Previously on expat assignment in Shanghai from 2010 to 2013. Highlights were a pro/am collaboration with Boxing Cat Brewery in Shanghai during that time, later served at the Copenhagen Beer Fest as well as their brewpub and later was given full reign of recipe and process for an almost entirely late hopped DIPA with 14kg of hops in a 10HL batch at The Brew in the Kerry Hotel.

  • Started brewing in 2009 after getting book-smart reading and listening to podcasts for 4 years prior until the Honey-Do list shrunk. Went straight for all grain mini batches. The move to China actually introduced me to extract for the simplicity factor. I used extract kits for the first 18 months. In 2012 the whole family relocated here and I brought over my all grain equipment and cornies. I've now brewed far more batches in China than I had in the US before the move.

    When I started looking it seemed the rule of thumb is to assume a usage of 1lb co2 per batch
    when force carbing and serving.That jives with about what I get.
