  • I got into the home brewing hobby mainly because I was sick and tired of crappy mass produced beers. there is a serious, and I mean serious, lack of micro brews in Florida. All we had was Hopps, and that was at times pretty sketchy.

    I currently have three corny 5 gal kegs and a kegerator with a double tower to try, and I mean try, to keep two beer on tap at all times. I can't seem to keep up with my own demand.

    My first batch of beer I ever brewed was the "Fat Man Porter" a recipe I got from the fine folks at Hoggetowne Ale Works. It only lasted three days after I got it porperly carbonated.....YUMMMMYYYY!!!!!! I now have a Blegian style beer going and an IPA. I can't wait for them to finish!!!
  • I am a big bitter hoppy guy. I like the clean floral finish of the hops. I plan on staying in that range, but like to step out of my comfort zone and brew something new every now and then.
  • Dubbel The Pleasure in my glass and No Nuptials Pale Ale in my bucket....I hate the bucket, I wan't to see what is going on in there!!
  • None in secondary...............yet
  • I don't bottle. I love keg beer!!
  • Fat Man Porter......YUM!!!

    pop it out/i...

    "Had to vent" LOL very ironic! Best of luck with the beer.. maybe it will be the elusive
    "perfect batch" that you cannot possibly recreate! :)

    "joy of homebrewing" by Charlie Papazian is a good book. Cheesy pics / looks like early 80s LOL
    but very informative! Also, check around your area locally for clubs / local supply stores..
