    ABOUT ME

  • My name is Josh or "Joosh" - I'm 27 years old and I brew copious amounts of cerveza. I'm the founder, acting president, and proud member of the Fairmont Homebrewers Club in Fairmont, WV. I'm a Magna Cum Laude graduate of the University of Vermont with a BA in Theatre and English. I'm multifarious in my interests - a jack of all trades, and I love DIY. You name it, I'm probably into it, at least to some extent.

    I've done a lot of crazy beers, but one of my most memorable batches was a traditional Gruit
    beer brewed with yarrow, mugwort, bog myrtle, wild rosemary, and "dry-hopped" with some heather
    tips. It al...

  • Posted in thread: have YOU brewed an amazing beer? on 06-11-2014 at 08:53 PM
    I get critical with the minor aspects of my beers, but for the most part I have my process down
    to the point that nothing I have brewed in past 4 years has been less than "solid." And I'm
    happy about ...

  • Posted in thread: Reusing yeast (saving yeast) question on 06-11-2014 at 08:40 PM
    I actually know a few homebrewing buddies who specifically repitch onto the yeast cake in the
    fermenter from the previous beer (which they just racked off) for at least three generations
    and then even...

    Come to think of it, I'm going to be brewing a 10 gallon batch of Munich Helles around late
    September, early October... Might send some of those down to the depths as well!

    Maybe put them in a milk crate then fill with rocks to keep the bottles from getting scattered
    by currents.That's the great part about where we're doing this - we're in a backwater section
    of the lake...

    My daughter and I went ice fishing and she was fishing on the bottom 70 feet down with a
    spreader for white fish and caught a full bottle of beer by the cap with one of her hooks!!

    Cool idea! Must not be in one of the northern states b/c it's COLD water to be swimming in late
    october/early november. Like 45F. Also not sure if this is a lake that ices up or not, but make
    sure you...

    You are correct, that is one crazy idea.I'm pretty sure beer in bottles floats due to the air
    bubble at the top, so you will definitely need to tie it to something like you planned.Also, I
    don't know ...
