  • I have been brewing for a while and learning really quickly.
    My best brew so far has been either my Porter (brown) or my coffee Stout.
    My main favorite style are Porters
  • playing guitar,brewing,electronics,microbiology
  • Veterinary tech
  • James
  • I like my metal like I like my beer; cold, dark and brutal.
  • too many to list
  • weeds, breaking bad, dexter, hung, lexx
  • I like a lot of books but my favorite authors are Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson and Nick Sagan
  • None at the moment
  • My set up right now is an upright cooler for a mash tun, 7.5 pot and 6 and 5 gallon carboy for a primary and secondary. Copper coil immersion wort chiller.

    I do all grain now but will do extract/specialty grains to show new brewers.
  • Pale Ale
    Arrogant Bastard clone
  • Dark IPA (Bitter Black)
    Porter (Lucky Penny Porter [aging for thanksgiving/xmas])
    Amber (no name, made with home grown hops)
    Coffee Stout (no name, 2 batches made the same except at the very end added two different amounts of coffee to see which would taste better [less was better])

    You can carefully bend the freezer compartment tubes to a safe position. I did it with a Magic
    Chef 3.6cf fridge and put a 2x12 cuff on the front. Look on the right side past the wood cuff.
    You can se...

    I saw that. Not able to remove top but I had the chane to see in in tore model and there was

    I just bought that one. I took off the storage compartment on the door and carved out some of
    the foam. It should fit 2 in there with little modding but it is a squeeze. I will need to take
    some anxie...

    One of my friends actually bought this to see what it was all about. It didn't turn out that
    bad. I wouldn't encourage people to "homebrew" this way seeing as you don't do anything but add
    the yeast c...

    The easiest way to bottle carb soda is to just use Munton's Carb Tabs. Straight forward, to the
    point, and EASY!:ban:I thought Munton's carb tabs were pre measured amounts of sugar.

    FH Steinbart can be a little intimidating but have lots of things you cannot find at the other

    condescending but aft...
