    ABOUT ME

  • I'm a Senior Global Project Manager for TomTom, an amateur photographer, started a few companies back in San Francisco and now living on a mountain in the woods in New Hampshire in a beautiful cabin. I grow vegetables, raise chickens and pigs and still dabble in entrepreneurial activities. I've been blogging since 1999 and still blog every day. rnrnMy entire team is in Belgium so I frequently am forced to visit the holy land of beer and drink great brews with my co-workers who keep some pretty awesome cellars. rnrnI'm an avid BBQ lover, prefer pit smoked pig and gigantic 14 hour smoked briskets and make them regularly at home..but can never find enough people to eat the food.rnrnMy GF is awesome and I love hosting parties. I also rent my cabin out to people when I travel which is too often.

  • I'm a beer lover. Started drinking Yuengling, Guiness and Fat Tire..then moved to SNPA and more mainstream craft beers. Picked up Sierra Nevada 30th Barleywine in 2010 and my eyes were open to a brand new world. Corked beers?!??! YES!rnrnQuickly began buying larger format and higher ABV beers and began cellaring beers in November of 2011.rnrnBy April, I decided it was time to make my own. May '12, brewed my first home brew.
  • 1) I'd LOVE to get a mall format french oak barrel and do a barrel aged honey saison with wild yeast. All Brett? I'd love to do that and ferment with cherries or blueberries.rnrn2) I'm a huge Gueuze fan. A 1-3 year blend of lambic would be a phenomenally fun project.rnrn3) Oaked Russian Imperial Stout is a close 3rd

    You can't cover the venting on the furnace outer panels,or it could dammage it. Maybe an
    isulated vessel for the beer?Thanks. I figured that wasn't possible. I wish it was a
    full-basement so the heate...

    I have an issue. We have a half base-ment at my house and I want to keep beer stored down there
    in the dark at 55F. Sadly, the room is 64F when I check the thermometer I've installed. But, if
    I turn o...

    I need a pro to sample these for me.The one on the left is the result of completely
    overshooting my grain bill and, when I took the original gravity reading on brew-day in
    January, BeerSmith told me...

    Others have already answered, but yes I think your process IS costing you time, money, and
    efficiency.Here's why:1. Time. The mash was probably converted in 20-40 minutes, but holding it
    for 60 ensure...

    Thanks everyone. I'll attempt this on Sunday's batch. I appreciate the help and yeah, it's
    taking a long time but mashing, I just walk away for a while. I usually brew after work so it's
    5PM to roughl...

    i have never heard of someone recirculating first runnings like that. have you shown an
    increase in efficiency doing that?from beersmith's perspective, you can't really do anything
    with the way you sp...

    Thanks for the feedback, so I'm totally screwed up in my process, that's good to know
    :PQuestion is, is my process costing me A) Time B) Money C) Efficiency (aka money)?Basically,
