  • I play bass in my band Losyde. I'm married with 2 kids. I'm German, and I feel that I was born to make beer.

  • I decided to get into home brewing when I read beer is proof god loves us(made me want to stop giving money to budweiser/inbev). I just got through giving my first brew out to friends to try, and me and the wife doing a healthy amount of testing on it as well. Pretty darned good as it is!
  • Blah. I haven't had the money to buy brew supplies since I return to the "working world". Sales, of any sort, are simply NOT for me. On the brite side, I started working out at the local prison, yay, a job that actually PAYS. So once I get caught up on the massive amount of debt that insurance sales put me in, I'll begin brewing anew. Hellz, maybe I'll make some caveman beer out of bread in the mean time, since i'll have all that on hand :P

    When I do get some $ I intend on making 3 batches of my Smokehouse Ale, a favorite of me and my friends :)
  • empty for now
  • nothing
  • My chili garlic ale and my extra dark ale

    The chili garlic beer is disappointing in that there's not much chili garlic flavor. It's a bit harsh if you've been drinking the piss water they sell at the liqour store, but it's quite tasty if you get used to it. I totally didn't keep track of how long my xtra dark has been bottled, so I cracked a few and they seem ready. Very, very mellow, not what anyone would expect from a dark. I'm out to change minds about dark beer anyway, so it's what I was after.
  • No kegging yet. I wannaaaa!!!
    I'm thinking about getting a cornie keg, or maybe some mini kegs. Broke the minifridge out of storage, so I'd have someplace for The mini kegs. If I get a corny, I'll just use to keg brews planned ahead for partys.

    well the actual head is comprised of proteins and CO2. An over-carbonated beer doesn't
    necessarily mean big head and vice versa. Head and foam stability have more to do with the
    proteins. If it is ove...

    you over carbonated. You need to go by weight and not volume for sugars because they have
    different densities. I've used brown sugar with normal results, along with honey.Well, If all
    that great head ...

    Lot's of great advice on here. I suppose I need to wait 3 full weeks to get more consistence
    from bottle to bottle. My only question is, does anybody notice a difference in head from what
    you use to p...

  • Posted in thread: What happens when you substitute ale yeast for lager yeast? on 03-28-2011 at 07:58 PM
    Interesting. I've been using nottingham for all my brews. So, being that I want to brew a bud
    clone (just to show I can, not cuz it's the end all be all of my brewing) I'll just stick with
    that, and a...

  • Posted in thread: How do craft/commercial brewers get their beers in stores so fast. on 03-26-2011 at 08:34 PM
    when I first started homebrewing I went from boil to "serve" in 20 days. Damned if I know what
    kind of yeast I used, I didn't write anything down and thought I could spot it at the supply
    store (nope,...

    I dunno, at one week they're usually not very carbed or heady, I'd say just wait another week
    and see.

    all this plus cheese making as well? I make my own salsa, bread and beer. Now that I think of
    it I'd love to make my own cheese well.

  • Posted in thread: Iscream, youscream we all scream for lagering! on 01-04-2011 at 05:20 AM
    I too am very interested. I'm coming to the conclusion that lagering is somewhat over-rated.
    Everything I've brewed so far would be considered Ales, And I'm lovin' 'em!

  • Posted in thread: Finally kegging now. Has anyone else noticed a big improvement in flavor (like me)? on 12-31-2010 at 05:31 AM
    That's fascinating to me. Of course, kegging is just out of the question for me. Just no space.
    I plan on getting 2 batches going one right after the other, but the hell if I know where I'm
    even going...

    I've been visiting longer than I've been signed up, but I looked for home brewing on Yahoo's
    search engine.
