  • I have been brewing since 1982 and am celebrating my 26th year as a Homebrewer.

    Seeing the craft change from Voodoo like hobby to (near) mainstream has been fun to watch.

    Cheers !

    Buying my own mill saved me dollars in many ways.For a mere 45 dollar investment *thank you
    Craigslist* I got a brand new mill that has increased my efficiency by 15, yes 15 points.Rather
    than having ...

  • Posted in thread: What got you into homebrewing? on 08-04-2008 at 09:12 PM
    When I got interested in brewing back in 1983 the "hobby" was more voodoo than science.After
    living in Germany for 2 1/2 years, the swill available in the US nearly forced me in to
    brewing. At that ti...

    Well, since you are the brewer, the hops will be whatever you decide.A blonde is a good choice
    but if I was advising you (and I am) I would suggest a Kolsch.It has the qualities you say you

    Well, I am talking about "watering it down" to 1.050, a normal Pils range.Are you talking about
    an off flavor?A 7.5% Pils NEEDS to be watered down, it is kind of nasty as is.Brewing another
    batch is n...

    I made a Pils and was not expecting the amazing jump in efficiency that I got due to crushing
    my own grains.Rather than 1.050 it was 1.068.It finished at 1.08.Can you say Imperial
    Pilsner?It is a bit ...

    Buy the best kit you can, steeping grains and a full boil are a must IMHO.You might even think
    about trying my method in Homebrewing 1A in the link below.If you just want to get your feet
    wet, think a...
