  • 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!

  • My older brother has been brewing for years and I have been wanting to get into it since he started. So far I am using a Brewer's Best beast kit and have brewed 1 batch of beer. I have brewed a Bell's Two Hearted clone, which came out better than anticipated. My second batch I called Star Lord IPA, as it had all galaxy hops and warrior for the bitter. It was fantastic! My third batch was a simcoe/amarillo IPA which I called Holy Diver. It also turned out very well. Currently conditioning in bottles is a beer I got from BYO. It is called Hop Hammer and was supposed to be a DIPA, but I messed up somewhere and the OG was not as high as needed for an imperial IPA. It will just be a very hoppy IPA.
  • 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.

    I've wanted to get over to Bells for a long time and looked into the car ferry across lake
    Michigan, but man is it pricey! If you make it up to Kalamazoo to go to Bell's, you have to go
    to Founders i...

    If you do SF, make sure you go to Lagunitas. Anchor would be a really cool place to visit as

    Aside from that, Chicago is an amazing beer city as well. I've made the drive out there several
    times and always stop at Three Floyds, which is in Munster, Indiana. It's about 45 min from the
    city, bu...

    I've lived in Michigan my whole life and there are lots of great breweries here. Founders in
    Grand Rapids, Bell's in Kalamazoo, and Dark Horse in Marshall are my top 3. A couple others are
    Arcadia Ale...

    Southern Tier's Pumpking and Warlock are my 2 favorites. Arcadia Ales' Jaw Jacker is really
    good too.

    My brother brewed a spice porter from a kit before and it was way overspiced. It was drinkable,
    but it wasn't very balanced and the spices were quite abrasive. Just a heads up.

    I'm curious as well how people would compare the SP10 and the SQ14.

    I have always used Iodophor. Never had a problem. Running low on the big bottle and was
    seriously considering switching (to try something new). I also have only ever used Io-san, and
