    ABOUT ME

  • Steel City, PA
  • I'm a writer and a brewer, neither one I do nearly as much as I want to.
  • Reading,writing,games,hunting
  • Teacher
  • Metal is my favorite, but I like everything except country.
  • Action comedies have a special place in my heart.
  • Game of Thrones, True Blood, Walking Dead, Tosh.O, Workaholics
  • A Song of Ice and Fire series, Harry Potter series, His Dark Materials Trilogy
  • I fell in love with brewing years ago, but its been a long distance relationship for a while now... My worst quality as a brewer is that I get excited about brewing, brew up a batch, and then forget about it! I think to myself, "oh, yea, that English Bitter, I should move that to secondary/bottle that up, it has been enough time." Then I check my log and find out I actually brewed it 8 months ago and it smells like dead yeast!rnHowever, given that I forget about things for half a year at a time, my meads are delicious!
  • I'm big into seasonal beers: pumpkin for the fall, mint chocolate stout for the winter, wheats for the spring/summer
  • Mead
  • More mead, only much older
  • English Bitter
  • My kegs have sat dirty, empty, and sad for years now.
  • Male
  • Divorced

    Hello all! I was super into brewing a good bit ago, brewing batch after batch, on here
    everyday, etc. But other stuff picked up and I totally fell out of it. Well, after picking up
    an oak cask, I want...

    Well, i double the recipe suggestions for spices in my pumpkin ale, so hopefully that will make
    a mellow pumpkin flavor in the stout.I didn't think of flavor loss... do you think it would
    amount to a ...
