    ABOUT ME

  • I am a proud dad, ride BMX freestyle & freestyle mtn bikes, shoot photo's, race my R6 for fun, make vinyl stickers & now trying to brew beer at home. I'm part of a team called Bikes Over Baghdad that does shows for the troops to boost morale and take their mind off being in Iraq. I get to do a live tour called Nitro Circus Live all around the world so I have a good opportunity to sample the worlds beer.

  • 300, Gladiator, Boondock Saints, Groudhog Day, Dark Knight, Ronin, Up, Surfs Up
  • Son Of Anarchy, Moto GP on Speed, X Games, Breaking Bad, Dexter... those shows are good but I rarely get to watch anything. Good thing for Netflix

  • My wife got me a Mr Beer kit and I got hooked. I'm always interested in how things work and detail oriented. I recently went big buying some new and used brewing equipment to step into partial mash and all grain. I picked up a stir plate to make yeast starters and have a basic set up for temp control to keep fermenting beer & smells out of the spare bathroom and keep the household sane.
  • Russian Imperial Stout with a chocolate stout as a parti-gyle from the RIS. Basic cream ale for my BMC friends. Saison. Open to suggestions
  • clean and waiting for the RIS to be brewed
  • American oaked tripel
  • Rye Saison - got the recipe on HBT and it turned out great.rnVanilla Bourbon Porter - found on HBT and it is good but aging itself to being great very soon.rnPale Ale - wrong water, bad beer.rnHef - old dry yeast doesn't make enough carbonation.rnKarmelite Tripel that turned out great.rnSN Pale Ale clone, tastes good but waiting for a slow carb. An IPA that has not lasted very long. Most of my brews have been recipe's that I find here on HBT with good track records and they turn out great.
  • I haven't stepped into kegs yet but I'm sure after a few large batches of bottled beer I'll want to invest in a few right away.

    I will be spending Thanksgiving with family in the Kansas City area and want to see if any of

    Well, I brewed this last Saturday so last night, I started soaking the oak spirals. I started
    by weighing oak spiral to have 2 oz of oak and it slid nicely into my hydrometer tube. Added

    Thinking about doing this and sticking it in an oak barrel for secondary. Are you guys using
    the AG recipe on page 7? I got as far as page 9 and decided to skip the next 50+ pages. What
    temp are you m...

    I am usually in Shanghai every April. I will have to look up how far you are from where we will
    be. I usually find out about my Shanghai trip by the end the year. Looks great, would love to

    Here are some photos of the final product! After a lot of playing around, we decided to go
    pretty low in the infusion. We got a lot cleaner and less gassy flavour this way, and the foam
    retention is o...

    Saucony Creek Brewing has the North Ramp Coffee Stout. It has a fairly prominent coffee flavor
    that makes it feel a little more at home during breakfast. Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    This beer is perfect as it is. I did do a 10 gallon batch of this in august 2013 and split the
    batch. One as is and the other 5 gallons were aged on bourbon, vanilla and oak.... Both kegs
    were empty v...

    I have a Barley Crusher and it works great. I don't brew on a weekly basis and the times I've
    used it since buying it have been good. I don't crush grain very often and couldn't justify the
    increase i...

    How's everyone liking this beer? I like that it doesn't use any crazy designer hops (citra sim

    So how did this turn out?I tried the regular Tripel first and it tastes amazing. The oaked
    version is a bit strong at this point but it hasn't had much time to allow the flavors to blend
    and mellow. I...
