    ABOUT ME

  • I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. Graduated UTI with a diploma in automotive repair. Worked for VW for 8 years, but currently as a mobile tech fixing ground equipment at O'hare airport.
  • drumming,wrenching,racing,cooking,pin stripping,welding,(too many to list) and now brewing
  • GSE mechanic at O
  • Shawn
  • mainly rock, and metal but i give everything a chance, big into southern sludge at the moment.
  • Terminator 2, Braveheart too many others to list.
  • Modern Marvels, Mythbusters, Chopped, Whale wars pretty much anything on Discovery, History, food.
  • do magazines count??
  • I was interested in making moonshine, but after learning of how dangerous, and illegal it was, I decided not to. Weeks later I saw an episode on food network "good eats" amber waves with Alton Brown, making home brew. After watching the episode I wanted to try brewing (add another hobby to the on-going list) being safer and not illegal, I went out and bought the basic kit with 2 buckets. Turns out my local home brew supply shop moved 2 blocks down from where im living after a month or so of buying my kit from them! a good friend of the family found out I was making my own beer and gave me a ton of previous issues of "brew your own" as she use to be an editor.....looks like I was destined to make beer :)

    the water turned blue-ish in color, (only soaked for 15 minutes) then soaked in starsan for 5
    minutes, (It never got dark) so I think I should be ok, thank you for your reply.

    I like the ease of use with the beer gun, but prefer the ability to fill under pressure. Plus I
    didn't spend an arm and a leg so I am interested in seeing how well it works.

    next day). Wei...
