    ABOUT ME

  • Oldsmar, FL
  • Originally from Akron, Ohio.......I'm here to make some friends and learn how to make beer. My third batch is fermenting at the moment, a Mexican style cervesa for Cinco de Mayo. All 3 batches I've made have been from malt extracts. I've read and been told that all-grain brews taste much better. Therefore, I aim to learn as much as I can about making all-grain beer. Hopefully the good members of this fine website can help me along the way:)
    Feel free to add me to your friends and get in touch.

  • "EXTREME BREWING" by Sam Calagione
  • This past Christmas ('08) I received a Mr. Beer kit from my sister-in-law and her husband. I'd never really thought about making beer before but I gave it a whirl and I've been hooked ever since. After my first batch I improvised a Christmas Ale which came out pretty good. Now I'm working on a Mexican style cervesa for Cinco de Mayo. I've got 2 pages of names and potential recipes written in my beer notebook. I just need the time and space to start making them. The book that really got me into homebrewing is "EXTREME BREWING" by Sam Calagione, founder of the Dogfish Head Brewery. It's pretty informative but I'm always open to other suggestions. I'm here to learn as much as I can about the beer making process and would, one-day, like to open my own micro brewery.
    Oh....and as for my name, "Hetuck" is a Native-American term for the eye of a buck. Hence, "Buckeye." And I am a huge Ohio State fan. The only time I EVER root against them is when they battle my beloved Akron Zips!

    I was going to use a sperarate pot for the oats to avoid the potential for a stuck sparge. This
    is also going to be my first all-grain batch.A lot of people say not to use instant oatmeal but

    A quick question I asked in another thread.......does Vienna malt have enough diastatic power
    to convert when used with Caramel malts or should I include some Pale malt as a base to ensure
    good startc...

    I recently brewed up a Belgian Wit. The recipe I used called for 6 gallons of water from the
    beginning of the boil. Boil it down to 5 gallons then rack to the fermenter.I've read other
    recipes that ca...

    Oh, I've been down the GL Christmas Ale road before. I call it the Time Traveler. I drank a
    good number of them then suddenly woke up at home the next day..........weird :)

    Most of that stuff is a bit beyond me, all I do is open up some extract cans, put it in the
    fermenter, add some boiling water to dissolve it, top up with cold water, add yeast that I have
    already hydr...

    I hate to ask a dumb question but uh.......what is a "tertiary?" I've never heard that term
    before. Though, it sounds like a secondary fermentation device. By the way, that Blue Eyed
    Blonde sounds abs...
