  • Started brewing when a friend's dad, who was a winemaker, helped me brew my first batch in 1990. It was a Mount Mellick American Light prehopped can, and it wasn't bad. I made few more as the years went by, but not often enough to get good at it.

    I've slacked off lately due to remodeling of our house, and other commitments that I can't seriously put off any more. Hopefully I'll be stocking my fridge again real soon.

    I like to believe that the bible doesn't tell us not to drink, but not to get drunk and offend
    others by it. So to that end I drink when my mom and sister are around, but never in excess. I
    don't cons...

    I can't believe I keep forgetting to take some pictures. I even set up a reminder on my phone
    and everything! I need to subscribe to this thread I think.

    To be honest, the thought did cross my mind and it was brought up at my homebrew club. I never
    got around to actually looking online for recipes and information. At the club meeting we
    briefly talked ...

    Birch was on my agenda early on, but I don't have access to any good trees.

    I don't know what Box Elder tastes like as I generally mix it in with about 4-5 times maple
    sap. The maples are various, I may be tapping red or Silver maples for all I know!Unfortunately
    I had a memo...

    I hate to be a jerk to the OP if he is legit, but does anyone else get the "This is a Troll"
    feeling from the post? I mean the guy goes from making a few brews in a carboy to buying a
    nanobrewery? And...

    I don't think he was talking about selling homebrew. I think he was talking about going pro but
    producing and selling on his own property.I interpreted it to say that he wanted to find a way
    to sell h...

    It's getting close. I have to go hang out at the MIL's house and do some fix-ups. I guess it's
    kind of a karma payment system. We also have to pack a bunch of my daughter's things up and
    prepare her f...

Sometimes the sun shines in, and I close the blinds, cause I can't stand to see the light of day. I have no use for pain, but I don't mind the rain, cause I can stay inside and hear the sound. Today I look right down, right down to the ground, there's nothing in between to break by fall. I'm blue for you, and I don't know what to do.
