  • Got started in 2012 with a Groupon for a starter kit from Midwest. Realized I was actually not too bad at making beer. Now I'm starting 2015 with 3 kegs and and planning a keezer build. Sticking with extract kits for now but always willing to tinker with a recipe.

  • Posted in thread: Getting a job at a brewery on 10-08-2016 at 07:37 PM
    Timely thread for me as well. I wouldn't give up my 6-figure IT job to jump into brewing, but
    the job gave me up instead last week. My wife said this would be a good time to look at work I
    want to do,...

    Yaay for old threads! I too got a packet at HomebrewCon and used it to make a fairly pedestrian

    I'm checking out auctions of used restaurant equipment for gear that has homebrew potential and
    found a glass chiller and a slide-top bottle cooler like you'd find behind a bar. While they
    are basical...

    Per their Facebook page, Weyerbacher is ceasing production of their Double Simcoe Double IPA.
    They were kind enough to post the all-grain recipe for it.

    Business Analyst and Digital Strategist. Washed out of engineering in undergrad after I flunked
