  • Laval, Quebec
  • My name is Markku Kivinen and I am the owner / lead fabricator for Agtronic Motorsport, which is a high performance automotive fabrication facility, operating out of Laval, Quebec.

    When I am not welding, I enjoy [url=]playing guitar[/url], [url=]photography[/url] and graphic design / developping. I also run [url=]Agtronic Media[/url], which is a small graphic design company that specializes in underground or artistic websites and print work.

    I love beer, and enjoy brewing it, along with red wine during the holidays. I have an appreciation for many different beer types and brands. My absolute favorite is Trois Pistoles or Maudite from Unibroue. In summer I enjoy beers such as Griffon Rousse from McAuslan Brewerie and other local beers. I am not afraid of more popular brands such as Heineken, Corona and Grolsch. I actually enjoy them all very much, and am always excited to try new beers.

    Hey guys,For many people, one of the exciting aspects of brewing beer is to always be looking
    for ways to improve from batch to batch. As you may know, controlling fermentation temperature
    is a great ...

    OP, do you know what your OG and FG figures were? It really looks to me like there isn't a lot
    of hops in the recipe. There is almost nothing in late additions. Without knowing the FG
    figure, I'm gues...

  • Posted in thread: How tough are lagers to brew? on 05-09-2014 at 03:18 PM
    Even though you have had plenty of responses in here. I just thought I'd let you know that I
    made my first lager about 3 weeks ago (it is still lagering) after I found a cheap fridge and
    made a temp c...

    The box is made by Hammond Canada, and it looks pretty much exactly the same as in my
    renderings, I am basically using it upside down. It was ~$12.

    Thanks guys! The first switch is the main power to kill the entire box and the other two are
    just auxiliaries for the two extra sockets on the back. I figured it might be useful in the
    future, maybe t...

    Hey guys, just thought I'd drop this in here. If anyone wants a SolidWorks model of an
    STC-1000, I spent the better part of yesterday planning out my box and got a little carried
    away with details. I'...

    Hey guys, this is my first post in this thread.First off, I want to thank you, alphaomega, for
    investing so much of your free time designing the code and then coming on here and helping
    others fix and...

  • Posted in thread: Are there any hops you actually dislike? on 04-10-2014 at 08:08 PM
    I made a terrible pale ale with Fuggles once. I wouldn't say I hate it, but it definitely has a
    unique flavor that needs to be used carefully. I'm still looking for a commercial example which
    will all...

    Hmmmmm, definitely shouldn't be too dry at 1.016. As you said, maybe it was just green.

    I thought I'd add that you may have seen kits which told you to add large amounts of sugar
    before primary. These kits are often referred to as 'kit and kilo'. The sugar added at primary
    is used to ext...
