  • Got into brewing via Mr. Beer. I still respect the kit for what it is and where it has brought me, but I have since graduated.

    I am still in the cheaper stages of brewing, using Ale Pails, Partial Mashes, and partial boils.

    I am also generally more interested in progressing the brewing industry than refining old techniques and recipes. I have tried several "off the wall" ideas and haven't fallen terribly short yet!

  • Bananas Foster
    Cucumber/Coriander Wheat

    Peanut Butter Stout

  • In a Relationship
  • Kissimmee

    Hmmmmmm, that's strange you got little to no cherry flavor. I know they're highly fermentable,

    do somethin...

    better beer ...

    Just FYI to all those interested, I am brewing up another batch of this stuff. The last one was
    good, but a little sweeter than I would have liked. I'm not going for the 100% dessert beer

    faucets, but I t...
