  • 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.
  • Any and all styles of ale
  • 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)rnBig Sleep (Milk Stout)

    Last year I tried something similar. I split a single 5 gallon batch of RIS into three separate
    batches. I then aged one on oak, one on cocoa nibs and added coffee to. One of them I left in
    the origin...

    Hey all,Is there a way to add new ingredients to the Miscellaneous Item list in

    I fear you are going to have to do some research. Look at a program like Beersmith and all the
    calculations that figures. There are so many you could include.

  • Posted in thread: Dry-hop & cold-crash time concurrent, or separate? on 10-02-2015 at 11:13 AM
    Dry hop at room temp. Cold crash for at least 2 days. I've also read that cold crashing takes
    away some of the effect of dry hopping, as the hop oils (where the aroma comes from) can drop
    out of suspe...

    American-Belgo Pumpkin Strong Ale

  • Posted in thread: Finding the right stout on 10-01-2015 at 06:42 PM
    Then I thought if I could make an oatmeal stout I could just separate a portion and oak it with
    some bourbon & oak.Is this possible or recommended? You could do that. Just make sure your
    secondary ves...

    Is it dark like a porter? I would say maybe a Pumpkin Strong Ale.

  • Posted in thread: I got a free Festa Brew kit...Time to experiment on 09-25-2015 at 11:43 AM
    I vote for dry hopping. I would imagine something fruity like Mosaic, Citra, or Galaxy would go
    well with the style. Or try Sorachi Ace. I've had Brooklyn's Sorachi Ace saison and it was
    pretty good. ...

  • Posted in thread: Starter Equipment Kit Question - When this all began! on 09-17-2015 at 04:24 PM
    My older brother had been brewing for a few years before I started and he recommended the Beast
    kit, as it had everything I would need to start and then some. I went into my LHBS and wanted
    to buy the...

  • Posted in thread: krausen question on 09-17-2015 at 11:40 AM
    I believe there are a few English type strains that don't drop very well, but as a general
    rule, if the krausen hasn't dropped , she's not done fermenting. Since you say you can't take a
    SG, then I wo...
