    ABOUT ME

  • California
  • Been brewing and programming for a "Long Time (tm)".
  • Drums,the Xbox,and beer!
  • Programmer
  • Dave
  • Clutch. Rockin' blues, great tunes to annoy the neighbors while you brew.
  • Star Wars geek. And, almost any "B" horror film out there.
  • Have been brewing my own beer since the mid-80s, though I was a brew assistant starting maybe 10 years earlier. Have done almost every kind of recipe available except for lagers, since I am not really set up to lager anything. I went through a big dark beer stage wherein it was my goal to create a beer through a glass of which you could not see the sun. I succeeded multiple times in that quest with a coffee stout, which is probably the beer I've done that makes the most people happy. I'm gearing up to do full mashes and plan to try a mead or two.

    Hey Tusch, thanks for the quick reply. Yeah... ack! I did not boil. I wouldn't mistreat my 20
    bucks worth of honey in that fashion, hehehe. I did 160 degrees for 20 minutes.

    Question... is the "About Me" thing in a profile somewhat broken? I was updating my profile
    with random junk and found that About Me would truncate itself in the most bizarre and
    unpredictable ways. N...
