  • 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.

    Despite the fingerprint tech's best efforts, our last background check came through fine (and
    ahead of schedule!). Now, for one last round of notarization, authentication,
    re-authentication, and re-re...

    you know you are a homebrewer when you see a bunch of people get all riled up over someone

    They were Customs & Immigration (aka Federal) employees, so no affiliation with the adoption
    agency. Funny thing was, the first time we had to get fingerprinted for the FBI, we had to go
    over to this ...

    The fingerprinting appointment yesterday went less than stellar. Well, mine was fine, but my
    wife had all kinds of issues. They had two techs (or whatever you want to call them) doing the
    screening, a...

    China standards--isn't all that far away from you. But from the sound of it, we'll be in a

  • Posted in thread: Most annoying response when you tell someone you're a homebrewer? on 06-22-2016 at 12:33 AM
    I tell people, if you give the bottles back, there's a much higher chance of getting them
    returned again, full. Sometimes helps.I have one friend who is notorious about not returning
    bottles. I've tol...

    Newb question - does that mean 15 mins to the end of the 60 mins boil?Thanks!Yes, add at 15
