  • Designer by trade, beer lover by nature. My business partner and I are in the process of getting a fledgling brewery off the ground, in Western Maryland. Our goals include: the pursuit of great beer; cementing our business as a player in the local community; championing the beer education of the uninitiated, and, ultimately, world domination (it's a lot easier to take something over when everyone's drunk and happy!).

    Personally, I love the outdoors, music, running, and, as an extension of those things, beer -- the perfect way to record all those great memories and seal them with a sudsy, hoppy kiss! Training to run a marathon -- running is such a wonderful feeling.

  • Got into homebrewing just as a hobby... something new to learn and understand. Have always had an interest in beer since I began drinking at sixte... the legal age of twenty-one. Started with an extract kit (I believe it was a brown ale) and was almost turned off to homebrewing by the rancid product of my negligence. Read up obsessively about brewing, got into all-grain after a couple more tries with extract and haven't looked back since.

    Just wrapped up our Citra Pale Ale this evening. Malt is MO, Crystal 20, Munich, and hop
    profile is Summit, Citra, and Sorachi Ace. Next up is a Scottish 60 to help kill this heat.

    We brewed this for the first time on the Winter Solstice last year and really liked it. We'll
    be brewing it again here soon, and wanted to share it with you all, too. It finished around

  • Posted in thread: Sulpher smell where there never was one before. on 07-18-2011 at 12:37 AM
    Another possibility is if the fermentation wasn't as active as the last time you brewed it
    maybe the gas evolution was more vicious and pushed more of the sulfur out of solution? I
    suspect it's probab...

    Aye, she'll be good in about 6 months (maybe not in time for Xmas per se, but close to it).
    I'll take a pic of my jubilation when the keg's getting tapped and that first glass is being
    poured :P

    1.130 barley wine (which'll be ready for Xmas)... I can't overstate the shock I experienced
    when I opened up my NB package and unwrapped the 5000 mL flask for our big beers. My god. What
    have I DONE?!...

    There's a retail license for the site we're going to be moving into so we'll be able to sell
    directly on-site -- but when we got to seek a house (can't do any self-distribution in MD) I'll
    make some a...

    Wow, thanks, everybody! We keg everything we brew, but we'll occasionally bottle some of the

    I've uploaded a few on another thread here, but I've made changes and made more so I figured
    I'd just make a dump -- any feedback is appreciated (especially questions... that way I know if
