    ABOUT ME

  • Homebrewing,playing banjo,surfing,bowhunting
  • Old Time music, bluegrass, folk, rock, reggae.
  • I brewed my first beer in March of 2003 and have been hooked since. I have made some great beers and some okay beers. For years I brewed extract batches exclusively but have made the plunge into all grain brewing. It is not near as daunting as I once thought it was. I enjoy continuing my education in the brewing process, something that hasn't stopped since day one. I don't see myself going back to making extract or kit beers.

    Belgians. I brewed them all. Dubbels, Tripels, quads, blonds, saisons etc. A few were great but
    most fell short....

    Hey everyone, I bottled a sour a week and a half ago. It was fermented with ECY-20 and Id like

    Thank you all for the replies. I believe I will keep it as is. If the Carboy breaks or shatters
    when I move it then so be it. I will buy another and put all of those bullets back in it. I

    tired of lifting a keg full of hot water. I guess I could get away without a ball valve as my
    goal is to ...
