  • I have been homebrewing since 1999 when a friend suggested we start making our own beer. Sounded like a fun thing to do, so as a result, I went to the local homebrew shop (New Orleans, LA) and bought an extract kit. My first beer turned out okay, but I felt confident I could do better. Over the years, I have gravitated towards all-grain, but I still occasionally make extract beers when I just don't have the time. I like darker ales and am only recently starting to try my hand at really big beers. I started out in all grain fly sparging, but have recently turned to batch sparging out of a desire to simplify my procedure.

    I still do that when I extract brew. I use sanitized Culligan water jugs, freeze filtered
    water, cut the jug away with a sanitized knife... I do this mainly as a time saving measure,
    which is why I oc...

    I love that show! Don't forget about Magnum P.I.!When I was a kid, I used to watch that just
    for the Ferrari. Gotta respect the mustache!

    My wife and I are currently enjoying "Keeping Up Appearances". English comedy, very light,
    extremely witty, if you appreciate British humor. The episodes are short (20 minutes) so it's
    perfect for a q...

    Do you guys with converted chest freezers inside have any issues with condensation? I have mine

    Deathrace 2000 was so bad, it was good. Does that make sense? Lol, it really is worth watching.
    It has a couple of young big names, too (Silvester Stallone). Plus, boobies. And, if I
    remember, maybe s...
