  • All grain all the time. Glass primary and secondary. Brewing and creating recipes of Belgian "abbey" and "Trappist" ales are my absolute favorite! I enjoy the challenge of formulating a truly complex ale, while creating a digestable, drinkable, high gravity beer. I also love the complexity of Belgian yeasts. I really enjoy American style APAs, IPAs, Wheat beers etc. Recently, I've gotten into making the different gravity Bitters. Now I'm really loving the German biers.
  • Another Vienna lager, my version of Altbier, and another Brown Bomber.
  • Munich Helles Lager
  • French style workers' beer, a Grisette and a Winter Seasonal lager.
  • Mead
  • Hails! Since I've been "away", I have set a 2 keg set up and now I hardly ever bottle condition! I still bottle most of my Belgians...however that is about it! In my kegs now are my Winter Amber Seasonal and an American version of a Vienna Lager... which is outstanding by the way!

    Hello, and Welcome. A first and very easy tip to follow is: Sanitation. Get yourself some
    Star-San or Iodophor BTF sanitizer and make up a sanitation bucket to soak brew implements in.
    Be sure to ask ...

    I should be able to put together my "Burn in Helles". A terrific beer and recipe, of my own
    creation. Neighborhood loves it... Now they're gonna have to make donations, as this is a keg
    that lasts far...
