  • I got into brewing as a dare from my wife about 13 years ago. She saw a Mr. Beer kit and said that I could not do that if I tried. Well the rest is history now. I used Mr. Beer for about 2 years and moved into a 5 gal setup. I am now brewing all grain now. No style or ingredient is safe with me. I like to push the envelope all the time and not just with my beers.

    I am brewing an Imperial Bourbon Stout with an estimated OG of 1.122. I have never done a bath
    this high and I really don't want to screw it up. My initial thoughts were to pitch two
    packages of US-05...

    Well I have been contemplating a bar build for years. I have a brew room in my basement right
    now that I can build the room out into a bar/brew-room. My plans are all in my head and drawn
    out on paper...

    That's an awesome build. We have been looking to move from PA to Charlotte now for some time
    now but need to find a job there first. :mug:

    Where in Pa? I'm near Allentown! If the pin locks are available still, do they hold pressure
    and do they have reliefs on the kids?

    baggie and froze ...

    I store all my grains in large bags, sealed in a 5 gallon white bucket with a screw on lid. I

    bucket. I t...
