  • I heard about it from a friend and it sounded interesting so I went to a local home brew supply shop to get some information. I ended up buying a starter kit and making an Irish stout for my first batch. I did about 6 batches of extract then decided I wanted to try my hand at all grain. I love doing it and its slowly growing into a tasty hobby!

    I cant stand beer in a can. However If I pour it into a can its much better. If had to choose
    between bottle or can, I choose bottle. Ultimately I pour all beers into a glass unless I'm
    ****ty drunk. ...

    I would like to brew a wee heavy but am having a hard time choosing a yeast. From what I can
    tell a medium attenuating yeast is optimal (65-70% Range), but the strands specifically for a
    scotch ale ar...
