    ABOUT ME

  • Been brewing since 2008. I started home brewing due to my love of craft beer. I thought it would be cool to learn about the different ingredients that go into beer to help broaden my palate, as well as having the ability to brew exactly the beer I would like to drink and to experiment and overall just to learn as much about beer as I can.

    Honestly? Too much back breaking labor for very little reward. I can't see myself putting in 12
    hours days of hard labor, and making less than I currently do sitting in front of a computer

    Yeah, I'll admit some of those "murky" beers look atrocious. It's as if a brewer thought to
    himself, "Gosh, those hazy NEIPAs are getting pretty popular. Well if a little haze is good,
    then 10x more h...

    I think Hoof Hearted is funny. Not ridiculous. So, I guess I and others like me can deny
    that.Now I really want one.ISO Konkey Dong beer. :)It is funny. I could see naming a a beer
    Hoof Hearted maybe,...

    I've not yet tried it, but I've had similar, and I just can't help but wonder how it'd taste if
    it was clear.Yeah, me too. Some people claim clarifying it will strip out all the "hoppy
    goodness." I am...

    I was with you until the BS at the end...Have you ever even had Hoof Hearted Beer? I'm guessing
    you haven't. I'm in favor of anyone who is doing something different than the ever-increasing
    "snobifica...

    I seems like most of the people (brewers) complaining about the hazy IPA fad are on the
    West Coast. Heck just listen to the Brewing Network and it seems like every episode of
    every show has a se...

    Well most of my problems have been thoroughly covered already but:1.) I have to listen to a
    co-worker the next cubicle over, who I'm pretty sure has tourettes, curse every 30 seconds for
    8 hours strai...

    I also dry hop in my serving keg. What I do is take one of those SS mesh toilet supply lines
    that people use in mash tuns all the time (I went with a 16"), fold and sinch closed one end
    with a pliers,...

    Here's my very first pellicle, using Yeast Bay's Saison/Brett blend in a saison. I'm so proud!
    :D

    Well even if the beer wasn't done fermenting when you racked it to the keg, sitting in the keg
    at 37°F for two months should have knocked all the yeast out of suspension either way. Judging
    by it's ap...
