  • I began homebrewing in 2008 because I grew tired of going to the local grocery or liquor store and not finding anything new or interesting to try. Everywhere I went, all I could find were the same ol' commercial beers you'd expect to find in St. Louis. So in order to broaden my tasting horizons, I was given a homebrew starter kit for Christmas and have been brewing ever since.

    My first batch was an Irish Red Ale that was not something you would call desireable. It was a partial boil, extract kit and it was waaaaay too bitter. It permanently turned friends and family off from trying my beers. I have been working hard to redeem myself and have made some tastey brews.

    I have since upgraded my brewing equipment to all-grain, full volume boil, which eventually gets put in kegs instead of bottles. My next project this summer is to build a brewshed to house all my equipment and make it easier to control fermentation temps.

    If I have some other method of indicating what's on tap (ie chalkboard or dry erase board), I'd
    go with the pub handles. However since this looks like it's for custom handles, I vote the

    I like to primary for a week then rack to secondary and start the dry hop additions. I leave in
    secondary for 14 days and add the second dry hop addition with 5 days left in secondary.

Keep your facts, I'll take the truth. Primary: Amber Ale, ESB Secondary: Apfelwein Conditioning: lots Keg/Tap: Pliny the Elder, Steam Ale, Oatmeal Stout Gallons brewed in 2010: 80 [last updated 11/17/2010]
