    ABOUT ME

  • I started out the gate doing partial mashes this past October. My wife's cousin has been brewing for many years and his beer sparked my interest. I have done partial mashes using DeathBrewer's procedures. Started out with a Murphy's Irish Stout, then Austin Homebrew clone of Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale, Moose Drool Ale, and from the local brew store a clone of Lake Placid Brewery's Ubu Ale. I have been doing 5 gal batches but I am going up to 10 gal batches soon. I've been in industrial controls for the past 30 yrs so I can see this hobby getting way out of control. When I start my 10 gal system I will be sure to post as I go. I can't thank the members of this forum enough for sharing their knowledge.

    I'd sell that tomtom while you can still get something for it. The world has moved to smart
    phones, and they replace the tomtom quite well. The android phones have a free talking nav app
