    ABOUT ME

  • Happily married, despite my new obsession! Five great kids all grown and mostly still local and five grandkids. Life is good! P.S. - If you appreciate your freedom and liberty, er, what's left of it anyway, thank a vet.
  • IDPA,noob (but advancing) homebrewer.
  • Local personel relocation engineer
  • Steve
  • Country music that has "authority"; 80's...
  • The Wizard of Oz; Defiance (the original, true story set in WWII Germany); Christmas story.
  • Walking Dead; Sons of Anarchy; Revenge; Big Bang Theory; Fox 'n Friends in the A.M.
  • "Liberty and Tyranny" by Mark Levin, as a non-fiction choice. "Enemies Foreign and Domestic" by Matthew Bracken would be my fav pick for fiction.
  • American Legion, Heritage Foundation, SAF, others...
  • This winter (2014/15) will be a year and a half, maybe 8 or so batches brewing. All grain mostly, with a break from the mash grind by extract brewing every third or so. Have a ghetto-rig with a plate chiller and pump, fittings from Brewhardware, nice SS pot with therm and two valves to recirculate. IMHO, as beers go, Amber's rule as they provide a good, non-burnt tribute to the malt gods while not puckering up the face with excessive bitterness.
  • I like ambers and reds, what can I say?
  • Amber Ale with second use of liquid yeast (Wyeast 1332)
  • I've kegged a few Amber Ales.
  • Male
  • Married
  • Eastern

    A monthly calender from American Legion; two or three random junk mail pieces; catalog from
    "The Glock Store"; and another junk mail advertisement. Why, what you get?

  • Posted in thread: Longest gone with out brewing and why? on 02-21-2015 at 01:55 PM
    Usually run two+ months between brews, longest "dry" spell maybe 4 months. As to "why", well,
    life's priorities can run beyond hobbies I 'spose.

  • Posted in thread: IPA Recipe - Hop Bill Look OK? on 02-16-2015 at 06:12 PM
    A change of .25 oz here, five minutes later or two minutes sooner, .5 oz there... Most ANYTHING
    remotely close to the original hops schedule or even a bit different will not be noticed by
    most peeps. ...

    I was going to toss in an idea about what ya might brew for your buds that like the
    "macrobrews" but what's the point. Brew what YOU like. :mug:

    [quote=ajdelange;6701503]Acrid taste is usually too much roast something. As he totals less
    than 10% of the chocolate and roast barley he shouldn't have that acrid taste unless one or the

    Just spotted your second post: the addition of the 5.3 mL lactic acid would supply 60 mEq of
    the 74 potentially absorbed by the chalk addition. IOW, the two more or less cancel each other
    out and mash...

  • Posted in thread: What's in your fermenter(s)? on 02-08-2015 at 03:06 PM
    5.25 gallons amberish red (or reddish amber) malt-fest with only enough hop bitterness to
    offset any (hopeful) caramel sweetness.
