  • Outdoors kinda guy - love to fish and hunt, backpack, ride motorcycles, etc. I've been brewing on and off since 1992, started with extracts and quickly moved into all grain in the mid 90's. My career has been industrial electronics maintenance, mainly working on CNC machinery but I've worked a lot of process control and programmable controllers also.
