  • I live in Lansing, MI with my fiance, our dog and 2 cats. I attended the University of Michigan and received a B.A. in Psychology. I have no idea when/how I am going to use that degree. I am spoiled in Michigan with great breweries such as Bells, Founders, Dark Horse, Shorts, New Holland, Oddside, Arcadia, and many many more. I am trying to get into a little trading, so if you're ever interested in trading for some Mibeer, pm me and we can work something out. Hail the Great Beer State!
  • Beer (obviously) and
    music. I play guitar in
    a death metal band called
    Betray the Prophet.

  • My older brother has been brewing for years and I have been wanting to get into it since he started. Currently I brew 5 gallons at a time. I am working on building a cooler mash tun to go all-grain. I prefer ales rather than lagers. I have brewed several IPAs, a double IPA, a hoppy American stout, a milk stout, a pumpkin porter, and an American Strong ale.
  • Initially I want to focus on pale ales and IPAs, and eventually strong ales and DIPAs. I would love to attempt some of my favorites, such as Lagunitas Sucks, The Alchemist Heady Topper, Three Floyds Zombie Dust, and Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree.
  • Left Hand Milk Stout clone
  • Hoppy American Stout (Summoner), Hop Hammer IPA, Simcoe/Amarillo IPA (Holy Diver), Galaxy/Warrior IPA (Star Lord), Bell's Two Hearted Clone (Fish Ladder), Pumpkin Spice Porter, American Strong Ale (The Gargoyle)

  • Posted in thread: Northern Mustache Envy Belgium Stout on 08-04-2015 at 07:36 PM
    I've had a couple commercial Belgian stouts and they're all like that..just off. IMO it's an
    odd flavor combination of dark, roasted malt and Belgian yeast spice/fruitiness.

    I would dry hop with at least 3 oz. I just dry hopped my Galaxy, Citra, Columbus IPA with 4 oz

    Original Poster and admitted home-brewing dilettante here. I am duly chastened both for my

  • Posted in thread: Can you cold-condition too much? (in bottle) on 08-04-2015 at 06:18 PM
    I had an American Strong Ale (Arrogant Bastard Clone) that was extremely hazy. After a couple
    weeks in fridge it still was hazy and cloudy. I let the last few bottles sit in the fridge for
    about 6 mon...

  • Posted in thread: Added to many hops to the boil on 08-04-2015 at 06:15 PM
    If you bought a kit recipe, then IMO the extra hops will make it better. Kits are generally
    pretty mild as far as flavor and style and can usually stand to be tweaked..especially when
    adding more late...

    Tough to see, but ai dry hopped 3 days ago with pellets and now I see these large bubbles. No
    white or slimey looking stuff...just big bubbles. Just CO2 or something worse? Any thoughts?

  • Posted in thread: Cold crashing and bottling on 07-30-2015 at 05:56 PM
    It took me 2 or 3 weeks once to carb up a cider I made after cold crashing.Considering I have
    zero experience with making cider, how long does it normally take to carb? 2-3 weeks for beer
    is pretty av...

  • Posted in thread: Can You Filter A Finished Beer? on 07-30-2015 at 03:27 PM
    Do a better job filtering your beer when racking it from the fermenter to minimize hops and
    trub. But it's tough to remove all trub if you're bottling, because you need the yeast to
    properly carbonate...

  • Posted in thread: Can You Filter A Finished Beer? on 07-30-2015 at 01:47 PM
    You could try using a muslin bag. The coffee filter is too fine, it doesn't let enough through.
    A muslin bag is coarser and would let all the liquid through, and might stop the hop particles
    from pass...

  • Posted in thread: Noob - how do I figured out how much grain on 07-30-2015 at 12:26 PM
    There are several variables that go into figuring it.Get a program like Beersmith and you can
    plug in various amounts of ingredients to get to these percentages. Keeping an eye on the OG,
    you should b...
