    ABOUT ME

  • Texas
  • Brewing Beer and Cider,Gardening,Hunting,Fishing,Alternative energy
  • All types
  • At 14 years of age, while thumbing through an Old Farmer's Almanac, I read an article on how to make Mead. The whole idea of being able to turn a sweet liquid into wine really peaked my interest, so I tried it using my moms baker's yeast. I hid the gallon jug in my closet and watched in amazement as it fermented. The sound of the homemade airlock constantly bubbling during the night became a soothing sound to me as tried to fall asleep. After 6 months of waiting, I tasted it and ended up dumping it out. It wasn't very good at all but I've had an interest in homebrewing ever since and eventually started brewing extract kit beers and then moved on to all grain brewing and Apple and Pear Ciders.
