  • I am an outdoor lover skiing, hiking, kayaking guess that's why I ended up here in Utah. The dismal selection of quality beer brought me back to the art of home brewing which I am currently obsessed with. I love the challenge of making quality brew. I also love building gadgets to make my brew day run smoothly. Still completing my brew rig all I need is the cash. I just finished my latest project "a grain mill"
    I am have also started a new Home Brew club up here in Ogden Utah. if you are looking for a club to belong to send me a note we would love to have you join our club!!

  • Introduced to brewing in 1993 by my friends father traditional polish guy. He was super nice but not real bright and I thought to myself if he can can do this so can I. He always said that his mission was to replicate Pabst Blue Ribbon LOL. Eventually I started into all grain and spent most weekends brewing. took about a 5 year break. Since moving to Utah where decent beer is hard to come by I have resumed brewing. I have most of the equipment to setup a sweet 3 tier system modeled after the more beer setup. I have the frame, modified kegs etc just need the odds and ends to bring it all together.

    stainless nut, tie it closed with some sanitized unwaxed dental floss and drop it straight into
    your corni...

    So Brew Ninja do you use Irish moss or nothing. I kinda like that all that trub/protien falls
    to the bottom of my kettle and my wort is super clear but like you said it doesn't stay behind
    in the kett...

    I have never seen so much trub prior to using Whirlfloc. That stuf really works but now I have
    to come up with a new strategy for leaving it behind in the boil kettle. I am thinking I will
    turn my pic...

    whirlpool going then ...
