  • I've been Home Brewing since 2004 thanks to a friend in Vermont, and I didn't drink beer until I turned 23 when a friend introduced me to good beer. Favorite beer - Switchback Ale Favorite braggot - Magic Hat Champagne cask aged braggot - I drank it on a tour of the brewery, it never made it to bottles because the abv was too high. Magic hat released a braggot the next fall, but it was boring, ever since then I've been trying to come up with a good braggot recipe.

    I don't care about how clear my beer is, granted since I started kegging it's very clear; but
    when I bottle there will be sediment, just the facts of life - make a wheat, then nobody cares

    maybe my stove is awesome, but the way I've been brewing for the past 16 months (eg. since my

    I think it's about $9.99 for a craft sixer in my neck of the woods, but I haven't bought one in

    As a guy who is at work on a Friday, any of the above sound good to me, except the death one,
