  • I stumbled onto home brewing a month or so ago. Looking for a hobby, a guy I work with started home brewing about a year ago now, and got me into it. Normally I would spend my free time golfing and fishing, but in my late 20s it seems as though all of my friends and former fishing / golf buddies have started popping out kids, so their free time has all but vanished. Also, paying in upwards of $10 for a quality six pack of microbrew was really starting to piss me off! Haha.

    I have the basic extract brewing setup. Ale Pales, glass carboy, and the essential equipment needed for extract brewing. Once I master this, I look forward to moving onto all grain!

    I just completed my second batch last night, the beginnings of a Raspberry Wheat. The fiancee likes the fruity beers, so I have to do some for her once in a while to keep her happy.

    I brew at home, and I used soft water and I have had not issues with flavor profiles. Maybe I

    Oh, and I too was trying to come up with a way to put heat in my Mother of Fermentation Box...
    and decided the mat was the least likely to burst into flames. Haha!

    I got one of these seedling heat mats from Amazon. Its similar to the brew belt and those sorts
    of things, but cheaper, and better built. I also picked up the thermostat that they sell with
    these. I w...
