    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!

    I just bought the ingredients to make this one again earlier today. The final recipe I posted
    (minus the DME) is how I'll be making it this time.

    I thought that you used Maris Otter?I almost settled but I checked out the other shop nearby
    and they had it.

    How did it taste? I brewed your recipe a few weeks ago. Still fermenting but anxious to bottle.
    Our area's distributors (Charleston, SC) are going to have this in 6-packs next month. Hope the
    clone tu...

    Did you happen to taste it before adding the yeasts? What was the starting gravity?

  • Posted in thread: what to brew with a tree full of grapefruit? on 02-29-2016 at 12:04 PM
    Make the grapefruit equivalent of skeeter pee (use grapefruit juice instead of lemon). I made a
    1 gallon test batch last year using Simply Grapefruit juice and it turned out pretty damn good.
    I didn't...

    I think I'm going to dry hop my Mosaic Smash tonight. 5 days later it's off to the keg.What's
    your recipe?

    I bottled this one on Sunday. There was a pretty good amount of trub in the bottom of the
    bucket, more than the last few beers for sure. Either way, I ended up with 46 bottles. I'll be
    cracking one op...

    Quick update -I have a final gravity of 1.009 @ 62 degrees. Assuming my homebrew calculator app
    is correct, I have an ABV of 7.7%. I'm definitely leaving out the DME next time. That being
    said, it tas...
