  • I "discovered" craft beer about a week after turning 21 and have not looked back since then. I started brewing myself in May '07 and I am very excited about my new hobby. I love learning about beer, sampling beer, and sharing my love of beer with others.

    My current setup is what many beginners have; there is the 6.5 gallon primary bucket, 5 gallon secondary, and 6.5 gallon bottling bucket.

    I did the exact same thing on my very first brew. The beer turned out just fine. If there was a
    problem the beer didn't last long enough for me to notice it. I drank that first batch pretty

    I'm pretty new as well but I can tell you some things people are going to ask/suggest. First of
    all what was your recipe? Things like crystal malt, carapils, wheat, and a lot of hops effect

    It wasn't really anything special, just a pretty standard ESB. The only thing LOTR about it was
    the name. I find this whole thread very interesting though.

    [QUOTE=gallagherman]From "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil"QUOTE]For my third batch back in early
    June I brewed an ESB named "Tom Bombadil's English Pub Ale." I wanted to pay homage to him
    since he neve...

    I've been very happy with their extracts. They have a high turnover so you know that they are
    fresh. I made a very good beer with their pilsen extract and a great one with their organic
    light. I also ...

  • Posted in thread: Is there a style you can say you do not like? on 11-13-2007 at 03:11 PM
    I'd hate to discount an entire style but I've been trying hefes for years and have yet to find
    one that I truly enjoy. I can of course appreciate what the brewer is trying to accomplish. I
    guess I jus...

    I live in an apartment and I can't boil the full volume required for a 5 gallon AG batch. I've
    done a couple of PM batches so far and I've enjoyed the process. I am interested in trying to
    make some 3...

    I'm not sure if you can get Founders in your area or not but their wee heavy, "Dirty Bastard"
    is great.

    I'm hoping to do what Colorado said, start splitting batches with my buddy. He is really
    interested in brewing himself someday. I'd love to be able to split batches with him. This way
    I could afford t...

    There isn't really a point to this post aside from seeing if others feel the same way. I am
    still new at this and brewed my 6th batch (a honey porter) today. Up until this point I've
    brewed all of my ...
