  • I was introduced to home brewing (and this site) by my brother-in-law who is also a member of the site. I was one who has never seemed to like beer all that much, but after trying one of his simple extract brews (a wheat beer), I was impressed how much better it tasted than anything I've had previously (which was just B/M/C style beers, nothing fancy, but I'm not a fan of them). I've become fond of many craft beers and various beer styles since I've started homebrewing.

    I don't get to brew too often because of pharmacy school. Still get home to brew some 5 gallon batches now and then. Glad to be a part of the site!

    Past Brews:
    American Wheat, Milk Stout, Apfelwein, Tripel, Honey Brown, Scotch Ale, American Wheat, IPA, APA, Bavarian Weizen, Dunkelweizen, Belgian Golden Strong Ale, and probably a few others that I don't remember!

    I followed this thread.The square design worked very well for me, I was able to get 86%

    Yep, we've got some cold water this time of year in Wisconsin, so I went from boiling to 75
    degrees in around 10-12 minutes. Awesome! The only problem I had is that the adapter I got with
    the chiller ...

    summer in ...

    Sorry to hear that. I agree with two_one_seven that attaching the bag to the handle of your
    kettle works, but also be careful about too much nylon bag hanging off of the handle near the
    burner (or hot...

    Pizza Plant's beer at the Buffalo Brewfest, Inferno Pod Ale, ran through a Hop Rocket filled
    with Simcoe, that one was good! Food is great too, even though I've only been there a couple of

    Welcome to HBT! Hopefully sometime in the near future I'll be working on upgrading my brewing
    system and I'll be able to order some fittings from you.
