    ABOUT ME

  • I always found our American history to be intriguing..American moonshiners past and present, the Whiskey Rebellion,the folly that was (and still is) Prohibition. I began to really enjoy local beers (Bells Beer in Comstock/Kalamazoo, MI) and at the same time began to garden and grow/can/pickle my own food. So, I thought, "If I can grow my own food, I can make my own beer." I actually made 5 gallons of hard cider as my first brew of choice, because it was fall and SW Michigan has many cider options available. It turned out very strong and too much of an astringent taste, but that didn't stop me from enjoying every last damn drop!
  • Edwort's Apfelwein, or hard cider using Nottingham yeast, Some sort of Brown Ale, preferably a Bell's Brown Ale clone
  • Skeeter Pee
  • Margarita Wine (all lime version of Skeeter Pee)
  • various hard ciders and beers, a few wines
  • I have a keg now, but have yet to use it. That needs to change soon

    If it makes you feel any better, I had to dump 6 gallons of cider about 2 weeks ago because the
    rubber seal on the lid decided to stop sealing my fermentation bucket and it ended up tasting
    like a wei...

    Got 6 more gallons started about 2 weeks ago and my margarita wine (lime and brown sugar
    skeeter pee) is finally ready to be bottled after 18 months of mellowing out the intense
    sourness of the lime. ...

    If you had a LOZ themed brewing company name, your motto/slogan could be, "it's dangerous to go
    alone, drink this."Sent from my SCH-I535 using Home Brew mobile app

    Bridge port 1 30th anniversary IPA. It tasted like skunky, beefy malt liquor of an IPA. I drank
    one bottle after I already had a few beers in me and didn't care for it. I tried drinking a
    second one l...

    ...still haven't bottled it yet...or tasted it in months for that matter. I moved a few months
    ago and just haven't taken the time to do anything with it, even though I've brewed some beers
    since then...

    Haha I haven't actually bought Budweiser in several years. Look closer amd you'll see that is
    the old pull tab beer can. I unearthed it and some other old beer cans and pop bottles.I did
    brew some bee...

    Not bad for a first attempt, and god damn it was significantly less money than buying one at a
    homebrew supply store!
