    ABOUT ME

  • Tuckahoe, NJ
  • Software engineer with plenty of chemistry and biology classes--took micro and bioorganic chem--and industry experience in all forms of control software, biological assay/testing, etc. I am into homebrewing for the fun of it--this way I get to have a nice bio/chem lab and put my embedded/control experience to good use as well. I am also into permaculture, raising small farm animals, kayaking, and camping.
  • Homebrewing,Permaculture,Goats and Chickens,Kayaking,Camping,Electronics,Ham radio
  • Computer Scientist for FAA Human Factors R&D
  • Like from the 70's to the late 90's with some classical and jazz mixed in there.
  • Real Genius, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.
  • Chuck, Mythbusters
  • I started with Mr. Beer and am moving into the next phase with a brewers best kit, extra fermenter, a 32qt brew pot, a pile of control equipment and software, and 1.5ac of land to grow some hops and barley for experimentation. My buddies are getting into the hobby and we have a mentor and a chef to add to the team. I am the software/electronics guy, and we have a chemical engineer(mentor), a couple of mechanics, and a chef in the team. I have a very limited machine shop and stick/gas welders so it will be interesting to see what we can do on the construction side. I never do things small!
  • Brewers best cream ale, Plan on doing some type of all grain brew next week, and ultimately a hops garden and a small plot of barley and soft white wheat to say everything was made on the premises.
  • Mr. Beer Canadian Draft + Vienna Lager and extra booster packs(a fine mess) in an 6.5g ale pail.
  • Male
  • Single

    We just finished pressing about 240lbs of Concord grapes from the local diner's trellises and I

    and left it in the primary fermenter for almost a year, procrastinating--had everything to keg
    it but some ...

    weeks, and this pupp...

    Another rather wierd question. What goes in to autolysing it to make vegemite, etc?

  • Posted in thread: Tried harvesting yeast today on 09-01-2010 at 11:45 PM
    So, the question is, is a quart of yeast in suspension overpitching? I swirled boiled water in
    the fermenter and let settled and drew off about a gallon, so I have no idea what the
    population numbers ...
