  • Posted in thread: Homebrewing slump... on 01-26-2016 at 07:38 AM
    I'm in the same boat. Haven't homebrewed in a year and a half, this forum used to be my casual
    reading and still is. Brew for a living now and working crazy hours I simply don't have the
    motivation on...

  • Posted in thread: Does a balanced beer have to smell malty? on 06-26-2014 at 10:24 AM
    Sculpin should most definitely not smell malty. Distance can do that to bottles. The first time
    I had Bells Two Hearted in San Diego I was so disappointed but after trying some fresh on tap

    Like DarthCitra said Knee Deep makes some of the best IPAs out there. My personal favorite

    My best saison uses sorachi ace and citra exclusively if that's any encouragement. Just don't
    go too crazy with the additions and you should be fine. I'd imagine nelson would be tasty as

    For a while I was doing Its Always Sunny references like Troll Toll Tripel and Day Man IPA

    in.Sent from my DR...

    Maybe try some puree at bottling. We use it for casks at work and a few ounces goes a long

  • Posted in thread: Pro brewers or people working in brewery field? on 01-25-2014 at 01:15 AM
    I currently work at a pretty large brewery and just from what I've seen I would say either have
    the educational background or work your way up from the bottom. Home brewing really isn't
    anything like ...

    I think now is definitely the wrong time to start a brewery. Its a huge bubble that going to
    burst. I don't know what its like where you are but here there has been a dozen new micro and
    nanos opened ...

    Working at a larger craft brewery right now. It's a factory setting and you are definitely
    working. If you want an easy (and large) paycheck and don't like to get dirty stay away. That
    being said I'll...
