  • I stated in 1998 with mead when a good friend of mine showed me how to make it. I then went on to show him how to make it taste good ;) After brewing mead for a couple years I gave beer a shot as American beers sucked after living in Germany for 2 years (USAF).

    My beers were pure extract beers. they were OK but missing something. Next I added steeping grains which added more flavor to the beer but it still wasn't what I was seeking. I had read about All Grain but the lack of money for the extra equipment kept me at extract/steep beers.

    Then one day I read about BIAB. Brew In A Bag. It was All grain brewing without the extra cost. I quickly went out and bought some material and handed it to SWMBO. Who looked at me like I had lost my marbles (we all know that happened YEARS ago). Yet since she loves me she measured my 10 gallon kettle and quickly made a bag for me, along with a hop sack. The rest is brewing history!

    I think the honey is the key to getting a really red beer with the OG that is typical for the
    style.the caraaroma and melanoidin malts provide the color as well as malty aroma. Trust me.. I
    added the ...
