    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.
  • Male
  • Married

    Again, I've only done a couple recipes on my own, and this is my first IPA. Let me know what

    Efficiency is about 75%.

    Thanks guys. This is for a 5 gallon batch which is why it seemed like such a low OG for that
    much grain. I have a 10 gallon tun (Orange water cooler). Would sugar kill the mouth feel of
    it?

    This is probably the third recipe I've done all on my own and I'm having some problems. I would
    like to make an American IPA, and I feel I've got a pretty good recipe going, but Beersmith
    says that my...

    Right off the bat 1.9 lbs of roast barley looks way wrong. It should be 3 or 4 % of the total
    grist, if using the 300L, maybe 2% if using the 500L. Thats going to make a stout.I'm just
    going off Beers...
