    ABOUT ME

  • Drinking GOOD Beer,Gaming,others...
  • Technical Analyst
  • Richard Carter
  • I like too many different types of music to be able to name one to be my favorite.
  • Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Spartacus
  • First tried my hand at brewing with a Mr Beer kit that I got for Christmas a few years ago. The first and only batch that I did with it was way over carbonated and caused several bottle bombs. I did get to drink some of it but it was very hard to drink because of the carbonation.rnrnFast forward a few years(2012) and I was at my aunt and uncles in Missouri and my uncle is letting me sample some of his homebrew. He's been brewing for about 20+ years at this point, so I guess in part he is responsible for my homebrew obsession.rnrnSo I'm at his house drinking some homebrew and thinking to myself how awesome it would be if I could make this stuff myself. So i got another homebrew kit for Christmas in 2012. rnrnThis time I got the Deluxe kit from northern brewer and chose the Caribou Slobber kit. The rest I guess is history as I've brewed several batches now and haven't made one yet that I wanted throw out.

    You got too much power captain. Try raising the flask up a little higher to reduce force on the
    bar. You could use a stack of paper or anything in between the flask and the plate to get the
    right heig...

    imho, I would absolutely go AG first, but it's really a matter of personal preference. Do you
    enjoy bottling? If so then keep doing that and start the venture into AG. If not, then you
    could invest in...
