    ABOUT ME

  • Father, husband, musician, brewer, second place winner of third grade spelling bee. I also have a pickle tattoo.
  • drums (check my band Sour
    Mash Kats!)
    ,brewing
  • salesman @ guitar center
  • Everyone always says "I like everything!" when, really, that means whatever is on the radio is good enough. The only genres I don't really get into are funk (except James Brown), Pop Country (think radio country), commercial rap, and most of the young pop stuff coming out. favorites include all flavors of punk, metal, rockabilly, dubstep, classical, crooners (like Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Dean), and classic country (Hank Williams, Johnny Cash). I also play in a psychobilly band called Sour Mash Kats
  • I am currently watching all of my movies in alphabetical order. It's a big deal.
  • Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.
  • Wife signed me up for a class at the local shop and it kinda took off from there. Got a starter Brewers Best kit, a batch of BB English Brown Ale, and a propane turkey fryer and had at it. Turned out great so of course I want to keep doin it. I've brewed about 10 different batches so far. I'm looking forward to getting into a little deeper and, after getting a few simple extracts under my belt, doing some experimenting with recipes and whatnot. Currently looking into the all-grain move and making a fermentation chamber.
  • Cream ale (First all-grain batch!), AG black IPA
  • Scottish Wee Heavy, Barley Wine
  • Black IPA been dry hopping for a week and a half.

    butterbeer "clone". I thought the 1 cup of butterscotch would be overwhelming but it was very

    I was mostly just wondering if it would get too cold since it's a freezer. I know the STC will
    flip between heat and cool, but was unsure how cold it would take it.Sent from my iPhone using

    Yeah I should've mentioned that I have an STC-1000 controller. Thanks!

    I have a fermentation chamber that I built at the end of the fall and it has worked great.
    Being in the winter, and being that I keep it in my brew room located in my garage, I did not
    really have a n...

    Thanks everyone. I'm hoping time will make it better. If not I'm not going to worry too much
    about my process as this was my last extract brew (for now anyway).

    I don't have my notes in front of me but I think it was 9 pounds of extract. 3 added for 60
    minutes, 9 added for the final 15 minutes. Pitched yeast at 70 degrees.Sent from my iPhone
