  • Started homebrewing in about 1963.. before it became legal. Not much in good supplies available. Pabst Blue Ribbon Hop Flavored Malt Extract, Corn Sugar and garbage yeast. Got happy but the beer wasn't very good. Got real happy when it became legal and better ingredients became available. Haven't brewed in about 10 years and am JUST getting back into it.rnrnLove IPA's for the most part. Once in awhile I like a lager or pils.
