    ABOUT ME

  • Adam and Lindsay
  • Lindsay dubbed Adam a "beer snob" long ago. As his love for fine brews grew, so did his desire to try it himself. Adam just celebrated a birthday, and was given a home brewing kit! With the kit, Lindsay picked out a Nut Brown Ale as our first... coming soon!

  • Posted in thread: How off will your OG reading be if you pull sample from top of carboy? on 01-21-2012 at 12:04 AM
    Shake the carboy and aerate the wort, then take a sample before pitching the yeast, that way

    to get an ex...

    I had the "Bitch Please" last night. It was raunchy, but a couple sips later, I was admiring it
