    ABOUT ME

    Thanks to vermonthomebrew.com, extremely versed and willing to lend a hand!

  • Sunday, October 25th, 2009:
    A little over 1.5 hours in the car each way netted me the following:

    -Southern Tier, Creme Brulee Stout
    -Southern Tier, Unearthly
    -Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    -Sierra Nevada Wet Hopped IPA 13th Release
    -Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast Stout (a mindblowing coffee replacement, I swear this is truly awe inspiring!)
    -and a four pack of Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout (2 are aging, one was drank that day (I have to say, it's not really my style for a chocolate stout, mild at 7.5abv.))
    I will definitely be back now that I have seen the selection of the Bevy in Winooski, VT.

    I then proceeded to walk across the parking lot to the Vermont HomeBrew Supply shop which netted me the following:
    -A basic brewing kit, glass carboy for secondary and the usual gear
    -ingredients for a Switchback type ale (mainly just want to see how this comes out and familiarize myself before I delve into a nice imperial breakfast stout mmmm.)

    Hoping to get to
  • -Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone
    -Rogue's Double Dead Guy Ale
    -Edwort's Apfelwein (of course)
    -Dogfish 120 Minute IPA (I have to at least try!)
    -Dogfish Palo Santo Marron (I have to at least try!)
    -I'm certain I will change my mind as I try more and more exotic brews, but I can't wait to see what the future shall bring.

    Did you have a chemical analysis done on that...it's supposed to be theoretically nearly
    impossible to get over 100 IBU's, needless to say 150!Nope no chem analysis. That's calculated

    save for two 750s for myself and a single 12oz for carb testing in about a month. But for what

    just bottled and labeled my smoked baltic oatmeal porter with espresso and vanilla bean.

    Cuvee Rene is most definitely NOT Pasturized. I have a very nice yeast sample from the dregs I
    just recently cultured. They went pretty nuts for a while, very active very quickly for me. I
