  • I Joined the Army in 1989 and attended basic training at Ft. Sill Oklahoma. My basic training company was Charlie Battery 3rd Platoon Air Defense Artillery Brigade. Went to (AIT) Advanced Individual Training (School) at Ft. Bliss, Texas as an ANTSQ-73 Systems Operator Repairer. After school, my first duty station was Kaiserslautern, Germany. I was apart of HHB 94th Brigade Air defense Artillery. Spent two years there during this time traveled all over Europe and The Middle East. I am a Veteran of Operations Desert Shield, Storm and Determined Resolve. After that, I was apart of HHB 35th Brigade Air defense Artillery and that became my final duty station in the Army when I got out in 1993. Later I joined the Air Force Reserves. I ended up going to tech school at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas as an Aircraft Armament Technician on the F-16. I got out as Staff Sgt. Now, as a hobby I want to connect with others longing to make good home brew.

    I often brew extract beer but started adding specialty grains to the mix. I have since decresed
    the amount of LME and DME to my brews and added more specialty grains. The beers have come out
    great. My...

I brewed my Chocolate American Ale today. Not sure how this one will turn out but I put it in the primary last night and this morning it seems I have very active fermentation already. The color is a very dark (obviously) almost like a Sam Adams Winter Lager in appearance but it is early to draw any comparisons. That’s like seeing a rookie baseball player hit his first home run and someone says, “wow, that kid could be the next Willie Mays.”

I brewed what I feel might be my best beer yet. The last 2 were good especially The Chocolate Ale. I brewed Kaiser Hontory Raspberry Ale last night. I absolutely cannot wait until this one is finished.
