    ABOUT ME

  • Sales Manager
  • I brewed a beer from a Mr. Beer kit and decided brewing is for me and Mr Beer kits WERE NOT for me. So, against my own better judgement I purchased the necessary tools to move directly to all grain. I also decided, foolishly, that I didn't need to use other recipes until I got the hang of it...so I made my own. My first was an attempt at a brown porter with coconut and chocolate nibs. As fate might have it...I added coconut too early in the boil so you cant taste it, added WAY too much in the way of cocoa nibs in my secondary, used ZERO fining agents, and of course way too much specialty malt. The result...a headless, god-awful cloudy porter that is way too strong and has a bunch of oil on top from coconut. Learning in this fashion did serve me well and my latest brews have been very good and have been welcomed with open arms and mouths...I found this site, listened to hour upon hour of brewing podcasts, and read book after book on the subject which has served me well...

    Please note that Reindeer Reserve was edited from a recipe standpoint and greatly increased in
    strength to be more like a Dk Strong than a Saison.
