  • I am a wicked big brewing nerd (and yes, I'm from Boston). I haven't been brewing long, but it came so naturally to me, I feel like I've been doing it my whole life. I love giving brewing advice to those who seek it, and I also just love talking homebrew for hours and hours on end. A fun fact about me is that I don't have a favorite seems that my favorite is always whatever amazing beer I have never tried before. As such I like brewing and drinking literally everything and mixing it up as much as possible.

  • I started homebrewing in February of 2010. I read The Complete Joy of Homebrewing cover to cover before I even started, so I was obsessed by the time I bought my equipment. My obsession evolved quickly, and I was already going all grain (and kegging) by my fifth batch. My fourth batch was an all-original Thai-inspired recipe that received an "Excellent" score in the Sam Adams Longshot competition. Ever since then, I've devoted myself to trying to brew different styles, dial in recipes, and make better and better beer. Even when I have to stop for a period of time, I always come back better and loving brewing more than ever!

  • Posted in thread: Pumpkin's Effects on Cooler MLT? on 09-25-2013 at 02:54 PM
    No need to worry about it...I just made a pumpkin saison two weeks ago. All you have to do is
    clean it out well. You really shouldn't need rice hulls either, unless you're using a very high

  • Posted in thread: Limerick Session Stout on 09-13-2013 at 04:34 PM
    This looks good, similar to an Irish Dry Stout I'm about to brew Monday. The version I'm
    brewing doesn't have the caramel, and doubles the flaked barley.Good stuff! Since posting this
    recipe I've also...

    I wouldn't go as far as American lager...unless you really enjoy that and want something along
    those lines on your tap system [no judgment here!]. I definitely like to have a variety of
    beers on taps,...

  • Posted in thread: New(?) idea for chilling in summer. on 06-30-2012 at 07:34 PM
    Sounds like a good plan if you've got all that equipment. Sort of a more high tech version of
    using a pre-chiller in an ice bucket to cool the water down for one's immersion [or
    counterflow] chiller.

  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 03-29-2012 at 02:58 PM
    Planning out what will inevitably be my first summery beer: a witbier brewed with ras el hanout
    instead of just coriander and fresh tangerine zest. It's gonna be delicious, y'all.

    You could always make a starter and if your starter never takes off, then your yeast is
    obviously no good and you're really no worse for wear. I would probably still try it, though...

    I feel compelled to point out that as I post this, I am in fact wearing a bow tie [BowThai]

  • Posted in thread: I need a name for my beer on 03-08-2012 at 05:05 PM
    Those sound like some pretty cool beers. I gotta ask, whats the BowThai ale?It's sort of my
    signature recipe. Basically its a Thai-spiced honey coconut ale with ginger/coriander/Thai
    basil/Thai chilis...

    Keg Cowboy has great prices for the stuff that you'll need...I would cross-check that with
    Midwest Supplies and Northern Brewer, maybe make some spreadsheets, and see which one will get
    you the lowest...
