  • Hello, my name is Bryan. I'm a Navy Helicopter pilot but at night I attend law school, since I'm getting closer to retirement now. I have been away from brewing for about a year but I plan to get back into it soon.

  • Posted in thread: Best Pumpkin Spice Recipe? on 09-06-2016 at 11:56 PM
    I've made this one three years in a row: the Samhain Pumkin Ale, from the specialty beer
    recipe database on this site. The first two years I bought a small pumpkin and roasted it. Last
    year I used th...

  • Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 06-22-2016 at 06:26 PM
    A few years ago my brother and I went to Applebee's (don't judge). He ordered a Bud Light and I
    ordered a Sam Adams Boston Lager, because it was the best thing on their beer menu. When our
    beers came ...

    I second the pretzels! Chips are good as well. Wings are great but they might be more of a meal
    than a snack... I think the peppers might affect the taste of the beer though. Am I
    overthinking this?

    This came out really well. A very nice brown ale. My OG was a little low, due to my poor
    efficiency, but I'm happy with the way it came out. Can't wait to have another tonight and
    share with friends t...

    I'll be brewing this up this coming Saturday. My first brew in about a year and I'm very
    excited. Bought the ingredients last weekend.

    I can't help with the hop question, but I just wanted to tell you to have a great time in San
    Diego. I lived there for 7 years and it is by far my favorite place in the USA. I absolutely
    love it. The ...

    Thanks! I don't have beersmith but this is perfect. I may cut the hops just a bit, but then
    again maybe not. I kind of like the idea of a brown ale that's got some good hop character.

    I have not brewed in a while and I'm thinking of making this in a few weeks. It looks really
    good.I see the percentages, but can you say what quantities you used for the grains? Pounds,
    ounces, etc?Th...

  • Posted in thread: What are you doing instead of brewing this weekend? on 06-07-2015 at 11:27 AM
    I wish I were brewing this weekend but instead I'm going to take the LSAT on Monday, which is
    the test to get into law school. I've been a pilot in the military for almost 20 years and
    retirement is a...
