  • I have a degree in Architecture and a background in a variety of holistic fields. I began brewing beer about 2 1/2 years ago and am really enjoying it. I am very excited about learning more and more about brewing every day and being able to enjoy the fruits of my labor. I see this as a great opportunity for me to combine my knowledge of herbs and beer into wonderful libations!

    to a keg with a FG of 1.002. It is clean, tart, fruity and dry with hints of spice and a

    If yours goes like mine did, you won't be complaining of it being too sweet. Mine ended up

    Cool posts and thread! I started mine three days ago and tried it last night and is still
