  • I'm work in the field of emergency services, as a paramedic, in New Hampshire. I've had the chance to live in Europe for 2 years and taste many of the brews that Northern Switzerland and Southern Germany have to offer. Something I would go back and do all over again if given the chance.

Since then, I've been hooked on refining the process to brew something close. I'm currently using a large Coleman cooler with a CPVC manifold with 2 large 40 qt pots to go along with my turkey fryer.

    I chilled a bottle and popped one open, tonight. Primed perfectly. Healthy nose of the yeast

    Von Trapp brewery in Stowe, VT. They produce some of the finest lager I've enjoyed in the US. A
    Helles and Vienna are two phenomenal beers.

    Subbed. Looks nasty, but I love the comments.

    I have never done this. I have seriously thought about it, for the same reasons you are. I ran

    I got antsy. I bottled 8 bottles of this today. 10 days in the primary, 3 in secondary on the
    oak cubes that I steamed for 15 minutes. The rest was kegged and conditioning at 70 degrees for
