  • I started brewing in 1991 after going to a lesson at a health food store in Memphis, TN. I brewed one batch of extract before switching to all-grain brewing which I've stuck with ever since. Chuck Skypeck, the guy who did the lesson while working at the store, later became one of the founders of Boscos www.boscosbeer.com where he is still VP of brewing operations. After about a 7 year brewing break starting in 2006, due to the fact that brewing was illegal in my state, I'm now back off the wagon and gearing up again, only bigger and better. I built a keezer and a single-tier brewing structure out of weldless strut which I am currently configuring for automated natural gas heating.

    Interesting. I've never used rice hulls with my wheat beers (hefeweizen's and wit's primarily)
    as I too use the bazooka screen and it's been awesome. I also crush my grains with a tighter

    I'm confused on the dates. You say you brewed Monday but don't specify a date. Today is Tuesday

    in a 10 gallon wheat beer I've made many times which has 50% wheat in the grain bill. I was
    just experim...
