    ABOUT ME

  • Spokane, WA
  • Read about homebrewing online for a year before trying my first extract brew whilst living in the UK. Loved it so much, I went to all grain within a few batches. Experimentation is a major goal of mine.

    Styles made: RIS, Misc. abbey style, dunkelweizen, rye porter, imperial porter, winter warmer, milk stout.

    Current setup: two three gallon pots used to boil on the stove in my apartment, an igloo converted into a mash tun, one bottling bucket, a used food-grade soy sauce bucket (thoroughly cleaned!), and two water cooler tanks converted into fermenters.
  • Fruit Lambic (the only style my wife really likes!)

    A more extreme RIS, hopefully around 15% ABV+

    Something freeze-distilled, but not an Eisbock. I don't have the cooling equipment necessary to lager, yet.
  • Nothing....right now.
  • Nothing....right now.
  • Something I can only describe as a miscelleneous Abbey style ale, probably closest to a Dubbel.
  • Male
  • Married

    Hi all,I'm trying to research the use of b. claussenii for conditioning a big beer, a la some
    of the old, British imperial stouts and old ales. Has anyone done this?My hope is to add a
    slowly growing,...

    A quick follow up: I found one resource that sounds pretty good, but I've no experience with
    it, so, comments? :)

    Hey folks,I'm getting ready to brew my annual RIS, a project I took on starting 3 or 4 yrs ago
    with my father-in-law. Every year I try a variation (cold brewed coffee yr 1, toasted cherry
    wood + cocoa...

    Thanks, folks!

    Thanks. A followup question: were I to buy Munich malt rather than rauchmalt, and I were to
    cold-smoke it, would it denature the enzymes to the point where they couldn't self-convert? It
    occurs to me ...

  • Posted in thread: smoked Baltic porter, first time brewing on 10-25-2014 at 11:02 PM
    Hey all,I'm about to venture for my first time into the wonderful world of lagers, having had
    lots of success with ales in the past, and several weeks of solidly cold-but-not-frozen weather
    coming up ...

    Great! So, temps now over here are about 40 at night and 55-60 during the day. I've got a
    detached garage, very shed-like. Anything I should watch out for when things go on to the
    colder end in Decemb...

    Hey all,I'm thinking about brewing my first ever lager, which, I hope, will be something of a
    darker brew --- maybe a baltic porter. I've had lots of success with ales in the past,
    including some fair...

    Hey all,I'm brewing my annual RIS, this time to try cocoa nips, chicory and coffee in
    secondary. My plan right now is to try the following amounts in about 4 gallons:4 oz cocoa nibs
    (2 roasted, 2 raw)...

  • Posted in thread: Preparing dried haws (hawthorn berries) on 09-12-2013 at 04:07 PM
    Hi all, I'm planning to make a dark beer, similiar perhaps to an Ebulum, using dried haws as an
    ingredient. Problem is, I can't find any hints on how to do this. Haw wine has recipes, but
    beer? Anyway...
