    ABOUT ME

  • The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes, The White Stripes, etc. Basically rock n roll music and alternativ
  • Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Family Guy, Brew Masters.
  • My dad was always a BMC, Corona and other commercial beer drinker, so naturally that was what I grew grown up on and the only beers I would drink. About 5 years ago, I saw a Samuel Adams commercial for their Boston Lager and was intrigued and curious what it tasted like. So I drove to the closest mini mart and picked up a six pack. Upon first sip, I fell in love and swore off commercial, macro brews forever. Ever since then, I have evolved into a craft brew addict and hop head. I loved craft beer so much that I decided to brew my own about 2 years ago. I started as an extract brewer and had 5 batches under my belt and then moved up to partial mash and mini mash. I finally graduated to all grain brewing 1 year ago. I started cloning other well known beers just to get a hang of all grain brewing and now have a few of my own recipes under my belt. This is the best and most rewarding hobby I have ever had, and I am just getting started.
  • Barley Wine, Nut Brown Ale, Oatmeal Stout.
  • American Pale Ale
  • Belgian IPA, Scottish Ale
  • Dead Guy Ale clone, Saison.
  • Male
  • Single
  • Las Vegas
  • Nevada

    then top off. The concentrated boil gives more melanoidin production and a darker color. It
    worked well fo...

    Thanks Yooper. I'm glad I asked cause it seemed really low. I used that calculator for other
    brews and they were right on. I dialed them up to 10 psi.

    the best deals on a keg setup and other keg system parts is kegconnection.com. When I was
    searching for the best price on a keg setup, they were the cheapest and have great customer
    service.

    Hey guys. I have a Scottish Ale and Belgian IPA sitting in the fridge waiting to be carbed. So
    I went on Tastybrew.com to check for the accurate PSI to set on my regulator. According to
    them, both bee...

    That's a good idea but my boil kettle isn't big enough to result in 5.5 gallons after a 2.5
    hour boil. What I think I am going to do is scratch the 1 lb. of crystal 80 and replace it with
    8 oz. of cry...
