  • My father loved to drink beer in the evening all his life. As he got older domestic beers was starting to cause him severe health issues. He started making his own beer and the health issues disappeared. He swore commercial beer will kill a person slowly. He switched to homebrew when he was 60 years old and lived to 81 when cancer finally got him. He told me, "if you are going to drink, drink beer. Don't drink that cheap trash in the store, make it yourself".

  • Posted in thread: My thoughts on Old Tankard Ale on 06-09-2016 at 05:27 AM
    It's one of those things. I've gotten myself really involved with life and its challenges in
    the last few years and as a result I haven't brewed any beer. All the grain and ingredients are
    there in th...

    This is interesting. I'll be following this to see how it turns out.

  • Posted in thread: "Clean" Tasting Hops/Yeast for an IPA on 08-21-2015 at 03:27 PM
    I agree with most everything above. Especially going easy on the Chinook and Columbus. With
    that noted, I've developed a taste for the intense qualities of those two hops. I love Chinook
    for any late ...

    I liked the fireworks display. Because who doesn't want to go out with a bang with dozens of
    onlookers cheering?

    I didn't bother reading all 32 pages of this thread, none-the-less, I'll share my 2 cents about
    the matter. Both are acceptable. Especially as you get older. It's like insurance because while
    you feel...

  • Posted in thread: Possible start of infection? on 08-21-2015 at 01:37 PM
    Now that I'm looking at this with better rested eyes I can now see what you are concerned
    about. I've seen that before way back in the day I did extract brews. It never caused me any
    trouble that I ca...

  • Posted in thread: Possible start of infection? on 08-20-2015 at 06:11 PM
    It looks normal to me. If it is an infection it will begin to look much more suspect as the
    days pass. Since you are only 7 days into this I would put the lid back on and not bother it
    for at least 7 ...

  • Posted in thread: How do people store beer bottles? on 08-11-2015 at 06:05 AM
    I use primarily Sierra Nevada bottles for my beers. Initially I soak my bottles (the ones never
    used by me yet) in a strong Oxy-clean solution and I remove the labels and rinse them out until
    the wate...

  • Posted in thread: Unusual bittering spices. Frankincense and Myrrh? on 08-11-2015 at 05:50 AM
    I'm not trying to create any conflict here. I know that Frankincense and Myrrh are sacred to
    some sects of people. Regardless, they do have some nice aromatic bittering properties to them.
    And as a re...
