    ABOUT ME

  • Graphic Design,and drinking/making beers,wines and ciders!
  • I've always been interested in the fermentation of grain and fruit. Like a lot of people, my first foray into beer making was through Mr. Beer. What a big mistake that was! After doing my first batch.. I wanted to quit. Thankfully, I saw the error of my ways and when into it full steam ahead by using quality equipment and quality ingredients. I tend to make more fruit wines/meads/ciders than beer... but am still a pretty avid brewer.
  • Recipe formulation is an avenue I'm really looking forward to. I want to try to make a true honeysuckle ale... but am still at a loss. But, experimentation is part of the fun! Also, will be looking into a "hard" root beer.... making a stout or porter that tastes like a great draught root beer!

    bringing an old topic back to life......I've been interested in doing an MLF in mead for some
    time now. After reading up on it, even though mead has small amount of malic acid..... there is
    still enou...

    Actually, Blonde Stouts are very much a style of beer, even though in all technicality a
    "Golden Stout" doesn't really exist.

    Stay away from Knee Deep Brewing's Simtra then!! lolI was able to taste it at a Beer Event last
    Friday, and I was completely underwhelmed with it. Love Citra and the qualities it brings when
    used in m...

    I can't stand Simcoe, just for the fact that too many brewers out there try to use it, yet end
    up with a product that is way to catty and has a nasty bitterness (ahem Simtra by Knee Deep).
    Even in my ...

    Pohldogg... I actually did consider that when I made my malt bill. But truthfully... the
    maltiness/flavor between an American 2-Row and a Continental Pilsner malt really isn't that far
    off to begin wi...

    Denny... if you know Jamil so well... you might want to talk to him. I've chatted with him many
    times on yeast.... he's my go to guy whenever I have questions about yeast. He even agrees with
    me that ...

    Thank you Denny for taking offense to my statement. It is just what I was wanting. Yep... you
    got me. I just wanted to piss you off. And thank you for correcting my spelling. That was an
    obvious mista...

    To throw in my two cents... when I tasted it last year, I was reminded a little bit of Midas
    Touch. Both beers do have a similar profile, with the big difference from MT being the addition
    of cocoa po...
