  • I have 2 young children 4 and 2 so they are really all that I have going on in my life. But I feel I have some time to get back into brewing. Besides my family, brewing, camping, grilling, and music thats about it for me.

  • Got into brewing 6years ago when an old friend said he used to brew and I thought it would be fun. So for my 30th birthday the wife bought me everything I needed. The first 3 years I brewed about 15 5 gallon batches. The last 3 years Ive brewed maybe 5 batches for friends parties or other events. I have lots of grolsch bottles but prefer to keg. I currently have no kegerator so if Ikeg it I dont tap it till Im sure it will get drank. My favorite brews are Belgium wheats or BPA's. I also like a good chococoffee stout.
    I have all Papazians books and most of my recipes are sorta versions of the ones in the Joy of Homebrewing. A friend of mine grows hops but doesn't brew (i know strange) so I hope to brew once this year with fresh whole hops.
  • I have a mish-mash of ingredients laying around the house so Im going to go and pick up and oz or 2 of hops and a few other random ingredients and through some kind of crazy ale together
  • Spiced Winter Ale

    Made up recipe not sure what style it is

    @ HeadyCalhoun's closed there doors in Aug 2011. In its place is a Capitol Ale House. Not a
    micro brewery at all but have over 100 different beers on tap. Very nice place a bit pricey

    Zac I used to live in Bristol and rode the creeper trail often. I wish Wolf Hills was around
    when I live in the area. Cheers
