    ABOUT ME

  • I used to make beer back in the early sixties when all I could find was Rlue Ribbon hopped malt in a can . Gave it up for obvious reasons after many years and have started up after seeing what's available once. Only this time around I'm using today's methods and ingredients. rnrnReasons are simple. Not too many real options out there (without spending a ton on craft brews) for really dark beers that have more to them than alcohol content and weak flavor profiles. OMO

    or racking...

    I love to watch the olympics- but I wish it was showing more sports instead of certain
    individuals being picked out for human interest stories. It's like watching a soap opera with
    a bit of sports th...

    I cooled a 3 gallon boil in a snow pile in ten minutes. I stirred while my batch boy packed
    snow against the pot. Worked great... You might want to unscrew your hose and bring it into the
