  • I teach children with autism by day, I work for NJ's early intervention system by night -and I brew beer, climb rocks, and hang with my daughter and wife in the evenings and on the weekends. I rock out in my car- and don't let commutes kill me. Was a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. Spent 2005 in Al Anbar Iraq as an infantryman. Love making all the things I like- I smoke meats, grow hot peppers and hops, etc. I used BobbyM's counterflow method, and it was Awesome. I made ALL of my AG materials, and I think everyone should do the same! Yup.

  • All about German lagers, and IPA's. I can't stop using decoction mashes- despite how long my brew day is because of it.

  • Posted in thread: 14 gallon conical fermenter in NJ on 09-07-2015 at 01:11 AM
    I'm wanting to see how much better life is with one of these things. Looking for 14 gallons,
    but if you have a 7 gallon one that your willing to part with super cheap- I could consider
    that too.In Nor...

    Do you have dimensions for the 7 gal? Looks like those legs don't come off. . . Also- nice Zipp
    wheelset. I'm pondering a set from Enve. But things like this keep happening. ..

    I can't believe this thread had posts as late as 2013. Currently, I loath SA, but recognize
    their Very important role in turning people onto what beer really is. I lost all respect when
    they began to ...

    I'm brewing this tomorrow. I've not followed an actual recipe in years- just style guidelines.
    I have a question for the masses- I'm going to do the hop additions every few min. like I saw
    posted. Are...

    Kosher has always been fine. . So far as I've seen. I typically buy blue diamond( or something
    that sounds like that ). . When salt has iodine, it typically says so. Maybe it was noted
    above, (I can't...

  • Posted in thread: Hard cheese kit... worth it? on 06-15-2011 at 01:59 AM
    I've made some Swiss( ready in Aug) and a few cheddar wheels. For me, it can be almost more
    exciting than beer . . Its very tasty. A farmhouse cheddar that I made was quite salty( in a
    nice way) which...
