    ABOUT ME

  • Hockey,reading,BBQ,and enjoying tasty beers
  • Stay at home dad and Assistant Brewer at Rogue's Harbor Brewing Co.
  • Ithaca Practitioners of Alemaking
  • Started as an extract brewer when my parents bought me a homebrew starter kit for Christmas in 97 or 98. I didn't touch it for about a year until I moved in with a friend who encouraged me to break out all the stuff and try making some beer. There were many ups and downs, and a few years of transition in my life where I didn't brew at all. Eventually in 2005 I started working at a local brewery doing the tours and tastings. That kick started me in to all grain brewery and I haven't looked back since. I do 5 gallon batches, and so far haven't made the same recipe twice, though I am now working on coming up with some house beers since moving to kegging.

    Not brewing this weekend, but I will be doing a brew on the 1st. Brewing a RIS that's going to
    max out my mash tun for a club barrel brew.

    I do it myself. I pour in the grain then run the drill. Sure a few kernels fall through but
    it's literally an extremely tiny amount that makes no affect on efficiency. Just ordered a
    Monster Mill myse...

    Also, forgot to add, I have added the grain before I started the mill before with my old barley
    crusher. Sometimes it would run fine, other times I had to reverse the drill for a pulse or two
    then shi...

  • Posted in thread: New mill - one man operation? on 12-29-2014 at 06:10 PM
    I pretty much always get my mill running before adding the grain. The drill I have has a
    trigger lock so that it can run without me having to hold the trigger down. But if you didn't
    have a drill that...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter size vs. flask size on 12-29-2014 at 06:06 PM
    The one thing to be careful of is if you heat it directly in the flask - you'll really have to
    keep a close eye on boil overs. I generally use a drop or two of formal shortly before it
    reaches a boil ...

  • Posted in thread: The five things old homebrew me would pass to new homebrew me: on 08-08-2014 at 02:44 PM
    Cleaning and sanitation are the most important things. Failure to do those and everything else
    that follows will be suspect.LARGE healthy pitches of yeast. Don't just pop a smack pack and
    toss it in.T...
