  • I'm really scattered and sometimes cannot stick to a schedule to save my life. It's not uncommon for me to "Get ready to brew xxxxx" about 5 times before I actually get the brew started. Sorry to be such a flip-flopper. It's not nearly as bad now that my grain mill is motorized. Someday I'll start my first lager. Someday. --- Find me on Untappd: tehchriso

  • I started brewing in September 2007. I have brewed only all-grain beer since Batch 1. I brew only ales, since I haven't invested in temperature control yet... but I'm dying to find a chest freezer to use for a fermentation cabinet. I brew a lot of Hobgoblin... other than that, I rarely brew a beer twice. I fell away from brewing in early 2009, due to a lack of time and personal depression. I finally got my equipment sorted and cleaned in late 2011, a rudimentary brewing space set up where I can weigh and mill my grains and store my gear, and as a result, I brewed my first (returning) batch on 1/2/2012.
  • Malty Fall Ale (Faux-toberfest), Multiple Saisons, lots more Dry Stout, HBT '06 Rye IPA, more Hobgoblin, maybe a Carrot beer like RichBrewer was talking about??, maybe a Mexican Chocolate beer as well...

  • Brettanomyces Raspberry 888 RIS Limited Edition - Only 5 Bottles In Existence (dumped the rest of the batch). - Tastes terrible.
  • Hobgoblin w/ Nottingham/US-05 Split-Batch | All-Tettnanger German Pale with W-34/70 | Ordinary Bitter with S-04 | Big Brew Pale Ale with Andechs lager yeast

    estricklin, I have no idea re: Belle Saison as I haven't tried my packs out yet! But I've heard

    I have TOO many options & can't get things to line up in my head right. My goal is to use a
    similar yeast a few times in a row, to save on amount of effort spent washing & saving yeast...

About what you'd expect - bruised elbows and butt, and a sore spot where the full 5-gallon bucket slammed into my chest. But I am ridiculously clumsy (I have been falling up and down stairs since I was 10), so it was nothing new. I was just so glad nothing bad happened to the beer!
