  • I enjoy brewing on an extremely small scale (maybe 12-15 brews in a year, although I'd love to increase that greatly).

    I like it all - beer is good!

    In my spare time I'm a diving coach, web developer, graphic artist and avid gamer.

  • I got into brewing out of sheer curiosity. It was something I wanted to try years ago, but couldn't afford. About 3 years ago I went out and got myself some equipment (and made some at home).
    I will brew anything once; and if I like it - I'll brew it again!

    I work in IT (I've done Network Administration, web development, etc etc. yada yada) - at one
    of my old jobs the IT Manager loved beer (as do I) and his dad was a former beer judge and

    Does the taste or idea bother you? I normally just let it rip. Yeast contain lots of B vitamins
    and other healthy stuffs.Sometimes the taste can be a little much when brewers have a lot of
    stuff in th...

    Good job. First recipe and it is drinkable, that's an accomplishment in and of itself. If I
    could make a couple of suggestions:1) What kind of beer were you shooting for ? You say a
    "fall" beer, but t...

    I figured I should update this with how it turned out (if anyone was curious). It's not 'bad',
    but it's not 'great' either. It didn't quite get the taste I was hoping for. The smoked malts
    weren't qui...

    Thanks for the reply Daniel.Before I read your reply I was reading a bit more about the honey
    malt and was wondering if 1lb was 'too much', good to know I was on the right track.I
    appreciate the feedb...

    Well,I like to brew - but have never even made a real attempt at 'making' a recipe. I much
    prefer to find recipes of beers I enjoy and create them myself. That said I don't have a strong
    knowledge of ...

    recipe for Barley Brown's "Turmoil" soon. that the recipe you were speaking of?I think I might

    Hey guys (first post),I've read, and searched. While I've seen a few recipes here and there for
    a Black IPA / Cascadian Dark Ale - most of what I've found has just been bickering about the
    name differ...
