  • Started home brewing due the lack of beer selection in the rural area where I live. i lived in Germany on two different occasions for 5 years and became a fan of "echt bier" (as well as my wife). I am married with two children, one in college and one in middle school.

  • My reason to start brewing was the poor economy in 2009, I wanted to reduce my craft beer expense by making my own. My first beer was a Belgian Pale Ale from AHS (extract with steeping grains) and it was fantastic. My second batch was an extract Hefe recipe and it also good. I have since branched out and brewed about 12 different styles in my first 6 months of brewing. About 4 batches in, I bought a mash tun, now I'm doing All Grain. It saves me money right!! (of course the payback for the $$$$$ I've sunk into equipment will take some time. Now working on a single tier brew cart, that will save me a ton of money.

    There is one brewery in Fayetteville. It's called Hog Haus Brewing Co. It's OK but nothing
    special. If you make it to Fayetteville let me know, my place is 10 minutes away and I have

    Hmmm. I'm not really so sure these kinds of attenuations are that great, flavor-wise. I guess
    some people like super dry beers, but for me I'd want to try to shut it down before it turns my
    beer to ch...

    Good news, NOTTY is BACK! The porter is the first time I have used Nottingham since the quality
    fiasco and I am happy to say the beer is bubbling vigorously this morning. 16 hours into the
