    ABOUT ME

  • Fairly new to homebrewing (1.5 years) and loving every minute of it! I work full time and am currently getting my master's degree, but I always make time to brew some beer (and drink some ;))
  • Homebrewing,playing guitar,reading
  • Risk Analyst
  • Daniel
  • Far too many of these...I read a lot, somewhat out of necessity for school (English lit major in undergrad and grad) but mostly out of enjoyment.
  • I received a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas about 2 years ago. It came with a LME for making an American Lager. It was terrible, but I had a great time. I also made an Irish stout, Oktoberfest, and a Mexican beer using that same kit. I have since upgraded to equipment for 5-gallon batches, and have done 6 partial-grain recipes. I am really looking forward to upgrading to all grain soon.
  • Definitely something all grain. I really enjoy porters and stouts, so I was thinking of doing an outmeal stout for my first all grain.
  • Coffee Mocha Porter
  • None
  • Belgian Witbier
  • I don't keg yet :/

    Also I just went with the single pitch of 1469. If it's good, I'll give the double pitch a shot
    on the next one :D

    St pug and pdiet, thanks so much for your input. I ended up doing 9lbs MO, 7oz 90L, 8oz 60L,and
    6oz of the biscuit. I'm really excited to see how this turned out. I can't control temps too

    No, please hijack away. While the thrill of creating a beer from scratch is just about all I
    can think about, I don't want to make a crappy beer lol. Any and all suggestions/hijackings are
    welcome!In ...

    Haha yea I'm assuming my efficiency will be pretty low. My hop additions are as follows:0.70 oz

    Anyone else have suggestions? I'm going out today to buy the grains and hops

  • Posted in thread: Critique? Looking to brew this weekend on 05-05-2014 at 09:55 PM
    Precisely. I was hoping for a bitter. The original recipe called for Crystal 80 and Crystal 15,
    but a friend had the 90. I definitely don't want a sweet beer. Thanks. I'll hafta fix that.

    Hey, this is my 2nd all-grain batch and 1st recipe, which was made by modifying one already on
    here (may have to improvise based on what I have available to me):7lbs English Maris Otter1lb
    Crystal 90....

  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 05-05-2014 at 12:41 PM
    YES! Hopefully Saturday. Sunday if my grains don't come in time. Using my new turkey fryer, and
    doing my second all-grain batch. Looking forward to it immensely

  • Posted in thread: No Mill, now what? on 04-30-2014 at 05:38 PM
    Don't put them in a blender. The blades will "chop" the grains rather than "crush" them. You
    definitely want them crushed. Rolling pin is a good idea, but may take a long time. I've heard
    of people ba...

    Really cool. Congrats, I'm very happy for you. I've read several threads like this and it
    always seems like other local breweries are there to help. The first one had me thinking they
    were just in a g...
