  • I live in Utah. It can be rough, but skiing, brewing, and general nerdery keep me sane. I am graduating with a BS in Chemistry May 2009 from the University of Utah, and will begin a PhD in Biological Chemistry there in the following July. If you want to talk brewing chemistry/microbiology, ask away.

  • Started brewing extract in 2007 with a buddy of mine while I was spending 2 weeks back in Boise over the summer. When I came back to SLC, I stocked up on extract kits, and did that for ~18 brews. I did 5 partial mash brews before I realized I had to do go AG, which I've been doing since early 2008.

    I've thought about doing this as well. How much HHD do you need to install OSX?Depending on the

    what to tell you. PT would say... take it easy and no heavy lifting (kettle, carboy, etc.). As
    a homebre...
