  • Married with two kids. I have a B.S. in Biology. I work in the veterinary medicine field and absolutely love it. Have had a love affair with beer since I was in college. Was drawn to brewing beer for creative reasons and also so I could make seasonal beer any time of the year (really love me some Pumpkin beer).

  • Love beer and have been wanting to brew for a number of years. Wife has been supportive of the idea and got me a Mr. Brew for Christmas. Never looked back. Right now due to limited space and my penchant for variety I brew mostly 3 gallon all grain batches.

    I have some dregs from a commercial bottle that has Brett. c. and Sacc (French Saison). I'd
    like to plate it out and isolate the Brett. Is there a handy way of telling which colonies are

    I have the stir bars with the ring in the middle already. Good call on something between the
    container and stir plate, that should be easy enough to implement! I'll see about adding some

    So my wife is not fond of the sound the stir bar makes as it spins around in the starter

    a real big deal...

    I made a 3 gallon batch of this and added about 2.5 lbs of cranberries to it. Came out really

    It gets overshadowed in the era of the IPA, but it has its uses and there's nothing wrong with
