  • I started brewing around 2006. Some friends and I decided to try making strawberry wine based only on an online recipe and NO background knowledge of brewing/winemaking. As you can imagine, it got horribly oxidized and tasted like crap. We agreed to turn our interests to beer, using a kit and actually learning about the brewing process this time. It turned out much better, and I've been homebrewing ever since.

    I've heard Jim say before that big, hoppy American IPAs don't appeal much to him. Aside from
    SA's distribution connections to get the beer in a lot of places and quickly, I don't see
    anything else her...

    If I don't age them in the dark what happens?In those conditions, not much.If you had a room

    Brown bottles should be safe in most conditions, but they aren't completely safe from light
    exposure. I wouldn't put them anywhere prone to direct sunlight.

    Time for a hint?The style is kind of vague (could be considered a few things), but it
    definitely fits the classification of "dessert beer".

    that stray pint or bomber is enough to get me through the season.I'd rather drink Oktoberfests
