    My dad has been homebrewing for some years now. I was his 'brewing assistant' and tasting the quality of his beer was enough to catch my intrigue. Maybe being an artist too, I see this as a new forum of creativity, outside of photography. The idea that beer is alive really interests me, and the fact that you aren't working with sight in terms of the final product it is mostly smell and taste and that is such a different spectrum from what I am used to. But now I am babbling.
    What got me into brewing was my dad, that was the seedling of this whole notion. It was moving to Norway where beer is ungodly expensive, and the luck of finding a patch of hops. I harvested them and froze them knowing I would find use for them in the near future.
    I'm trying to be independent in my brewing. I am steering away from kits, and just trying to do my own thing. I will probably be an extract brewer for a long time because of space considerations. But I think hopefully in a year or two it w

    Thanks! I also run my works blog, where I am assistant brewer. That one is a little more pro
    looking and a lot, lot less nerdy. But yeah, thanks for checking it out!

    A few months ago, I started a blog chronicling my home brewing. What sets my blog apart is how
    incredibly lame it is. You see, my main project right now is a series of beers based on the A

    Made a rhubarb belgian ale recently, OG was 1.056, checked the gravity a week after
    fermentation started and it was only 1.020, checked again two weeks on and it is still 1.020.
    the sample tastes pret...

    The dill isn't a sour note though, I noticed it when I was bottling but didn't think it was an
    off note at all, just interesting, but after it carbed up it became much more intense and
    nasty. But I di...

    Ok. So I just bottled a batch of beer, it's been sitting now for about 2 weeks at 65 degrees or
    so. Cracked open the first bottle and the smell really, really, really takes your breath away.
    It is lik...

    no I don't, and I live in norway, where it is difficult to find rubberbands in most
    supermarkets... I doubt finding simethicone would be easy. It seems like its calming down
    though, it's been going st...

    I think I'm just going to separate it out and recombine it later on like a did with the oatmeal
    stout before this. I'm going to work in a few hours and the last thing I want to come home to
    is a crazy...

    It's either 52 in the basement or 68 in my living room, my bedroom is between 58-65 but it
