  • I have wanted to brew for the last 8 years, but temporary living situations, and a 4 year stint in Germany (right on the belgian border) kept me from assembling all the crap needed to brew until August 2013. I started all-grain and kegging right away, and thus wanted to build a nice system I can grow into. I also am a handy woodworker and have some wiring/engineering knowledge from work.

    connect it...

    I love brewing with Conan. Any Colorado Brewers can find this yeast easily through Inland
    Island. Their "Colorado IPA" yeast is Conan, and it works like a charm.In my experience, this

    yeah I know all strains act differently and may not reach high krausen before pitching into the
    big batch, but it's a great idea. Either way it gives them a head-start and should shorten your
    lag time...
