    ABOUT ME

  • Orson Scott Cards Ender series
  • Did my first brew in 1973, I had 2 friends Tall Dave and Auggiebrew who did a brew on National home brew day at Homewine supply in Dundee Mi. Auggie also known short Dave, talked me into brewing from a cooler. 12 years later its still the same. HWS brews big batches and sells the wort. So I do about 3 brews with them and 12 all-grain a year. I also make 150+ bottles of wine a year from whole grapes from california. All my wines are aged 2 years on oak and 1 year in the bottle. I do brew a nice scottish ale at 11%, Russian imperial, I have cloned Founders Breakfast Stout, and some nice english IPA(now with honey.
