    ABOUT ME

  • 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 style...it 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!

    There are no stickies on getting into winemaking, so I'm hoping someone can give me some
    advice. I am an advanced all-grain homebrewer, and I've had good luck with cider and mead
    making as well. I am ...

    Every link I can possibly find for it is non-functional. Can someone possibly link the PDF in
    this thread?

  • Posted in thread: Mixing yeast strains (001 + Belgian?) on 03-23-2015 at 02:10 AM
    Yes, it really is as easy as pitching two vials of yeast, and often, using two different yeasts
    can add a really nice complexity to the beer. I would rethink your combination of yeasts
    though. WLP001 ...

    Better Bottle users assemble! Recently, I had an unfortunate incident that destroyed two of my
    5-gallon glass carboys. At the moment, all I have left is my 6.5-gallon glass carboy, a bucket
    and a coup...

    Thanks, all good info! Will definitely be trying some out in the very near future. I'd love to
    do some kind of stone fruit and perhaps a hibiscus batch, and I like the idea of lighter
    carbonation. How...

    Anyone had luck with hydromels, or "session strength" meads (OG 1.044-1.064)? I'm very
    intrigued to experiment with them as they are quicker to mature. Please share any advice and
    experiences you have
