  • I became interested in brewing when I was 14 - I went to Europe (without the parents) and discovered that there was more to beer than American lager. Then you fast forward three years; out on my own and there in the local book store the first edition of the Papazian book, yes, the bible... I've been brewing for 31 years now. Extract, all-grain, it all depends on the goal and the time available. My wife is my brewing buddy and, being German, she loves most of my beers.

    I hadn't actually made any plans but I'd be happy to coordinate such an event for a lazy Sunday
    afternoon. And I'd love to get the local shops involved. Homebrew Heaven is my home store.

    James in Mountlake Terrace.I'm thinking Washington needs a homebrew swap. A chance to meet one
    another and swap some tasty homebrews for something we might not have tried before.

    Steeping grains that hot won't result in tannins unless the pH is too high. Cane sugar won't
    result in cidery flavors so long as your fermentation temperatures are held in check and you're
    pitching en...

    Since the usual champagne yeasts are competitive yeasts, if you pitch S05 and champagne
    simultaneously, the champagne yeast will begin killing the s05. Pitch champagne when the

    Lagers are great as long as you can control the temperature. The lower you can go on the
    yeast's temp tolerance the better. Maybe a kolsch? Or how about a saison with summer coming?
