  • 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

  • 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.

    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...
