  • I started brewing a few years ago, and learned nearly everything from here. All my Google searches, seemed to lead to threads on HBT. Eventually, I stopped lurking, had questions, and signed up. Now, I help out others when I can.
  • Surfing,Brewing,Music,and DIY.
  • The Walking Dead, Arrested Development, The League, Bizarre Foods, No Reservations, and other shows that are similar.
  • Hops, Yeast, and Water series, are great reading. I'm waiting to buy the new book, on Malt.
  • I got into homebrewing, thinking it would be easy to make good beer, I stayed in homebrewing because of the challenge it was to make something decent. I didn't give up, and now make some delicious beers. I started out small, but realized the time spent on brewing was worth more than 2.5G, so I moved up to 5.5G batches. I'm constantly upgrading, and making new gadgets. Currently, looking into a DIY RIMS tube. While sampling various batches/styles, and researching recipes/techniques.

    Drilled a pilot hole, in my 60Q Concord Kettle, then punched a 13/16" hole. It was pretty
    difficult, and I destroyed a few bits, in the process.

    Finally bent a 50' x 1/2" copper tubing coil, I had laying around, into a wort chiller. I'd say
    it's an upgrade! Here it is, next to my old 25' x 3/8" chiller.

    Cleaned up the brew spot, and got things ready for my next brew day. Disassembled, and cleaned
    off, my monster mill. Swept the floor, and consolidated some equipment.

    Just purchased a False Bottom, for my 10 gal Spike Brewing Kettle. Thanks Jaybird, I'm very
    excited about this upgrade to my setup!

    Since I didn't see them mentioned already, I really like Labelpeelers, because of the low
    prices, hop union packaging, and they always have sales going on. I've used a couple other's
    that I like as we...

    I just rinse it off, and boil it in the starter wort.

    Bought a Saison Dupont, to try something new. I'll see about saving the dregs.

    Racked 6 gal of Oat stout, to a couple of 3 gal cornies. Thinking of adding something special
    to one of 'em. Probably Bourbon, and Oak cubes. It would be a first, for me.
