    ABOUT ME

  • I once won an argument with myself. I have been described as a handsome square jawed lunatic! A rattlesnake bit me last year, it died of poisoning. rnrnI have a word for men whom can't lift their own body weight, women. A man should be able to process wild game, know how to woo a lady, and feel reasonably comfortable of the outcome when squaring off with 2 attackers. A man should also know either good whisky or good beer, know how to cook well, be well read, be passionate about what life has to offer, be humble, never be a braggart, be comfortable with who and what he is, be able to move beyond and learn from his failures, be good with at least one of the following handy disciplines; electrician, mechanic, or carpentry.

  • I watched beerfest and googled homemade beer. It's all a blur from there! I'm an AG brewer. I'm neither a hophead nor a malt crazy... I'm both. If it's a well made brew I'll probably enjoy it. Not a big drinker but love good bier and food. As such I take as much pleasure in a 3.5% bier as I do a 10.5%.

    Double_D & hottpeper13's comments are dead on. I would add 2 things, for malt richness
    Victory/Biscuit or Amber malt at 6-12 oz per 5 gallons depending on what you want helps to
    accentuate malt charac...

    Dude, adjust the temp up and crack the door/lid to allow it to warm up with a quickness!
    Freezing ice is literally strong enough to crush steel ships, your kegs, fittings, etc are no

    So I've made 3 AG brews previously however this is the first I've attempted this year. I was
    aiming for 3kg of marris otter and I've got 6 varieties of hops in the freezer so was just
    going to pick a ...

    I find it pretty easy to age bottles. I keg now and it's harder to make myself bottle just to
    set aside but I'm also usually bottling RIS, barleywines, etc. anyway. I drank my last bottle
    of Scotch Al...

    Hey Mark, this is Phillip, been meaning to call you for a while just to say hi. I see the hops
    are looking good and y'all have been afflicted with lots of rain like us in south MS. Hope

    forgot, basic brewing radio had a good episode earlier this year on spring hop care, had some
    good and probably useful information for you

  • Posted in thread: Third Year Hops Not Doing Well, Clay Soil on 04-14-2016 at 04:55 AM
    A few things. For those of us in warmer climate a HUGE issue with hops is they need winter
    exposure to cold to be of a certain duration and temperature combo. IF this requirement isn't

    my biggest warning is that it's such a beautiful wood that it would seem like a waste to use it
    in a beer.Burn this heretic!!!Seriously I'm unaware of the compounds in the blk walnut so won't
    give adv...
