  • It all started in 2008 with a garage sale two houses down. The guy bought a Mr. Beer kit and never used it. I bought it for $5 dollars. These days I'm going outside of the Mr. Beer realm and into more flexible recipes, equipment, and techniques. This is why I'm here. To learn and be impressed by those who have been brewing many years. Think of me as a young jedi.

    My most ambitious brews were my honey & blueberry stout in early 2010, and my holiday brew with cinnamon and vanilla. The wife wanted nothing to do with them. Friends loved it.

    Definitely don't want to start out with rotten strawberries as I did. Throw them in ripe and
    frozen. I heard it helps even better if crushed or mashed too. Sorry you had to witness that

    You made this beer quick. Seems like almost two quick to be just under 3 weeks. Think I'll give
    it a try.

    Um yeah this has gotten pretty stupid. Passive-aggression is strong with drathbone. Freezing
    doesn't sanitize fruit, I never said that it does. Gotta love skewing perception in order to
    get it to fit ...

    I know the photos don't show great detail but the front without sanding or staining looks f-ing
    great already. I'm sure it'll look even better with the stain on it. I'm surprised that someone

    That think looks like a can of brake fluid.

    ^ wow you managed to draw a ton of conclusions about my process from my 4 sentence reply to the
    OP. Probably unneeded for you to do that and slightly irrational to make those assumptions.

    I would be careful about freezing. Not all bacteria is killed by freezing temps, much like
    yeast they simply go dormant until heated back up. I would pasteurize or soak in alcohol to
    prevent infection...

    Chopping it into smaller pieces depends on what fruit you use. Most folks will chop them and
    throw them into a plastic bag. Or slightly mash them inside of the plastic sandwich bag, and
    freeze them so...
