  • I am very outgoing. Like the outdoors, enjoy gardening and am trying my hand at growing hops below the 44 parallel. Will see what happens. I am keeping records.

  • Just wanted something different besides BMC. Tired of the same old stuff with no flavor. Starter with a few extract recipes from Midwest, then moved on to All Grain where I have more control over what is happening with my brews.

    I would think that the cooler would warp at boiling temperatures especially for 60 or 90

    I have used it in an Irish Red Ale and it came out a nice deep dark red. Perfect for this style
    of beer. Replaced half of the Pale Ale with RedX and it came out to 17.1 SRM.

    Got a blood orange witbier brewing now. I also used half pilsner/ half wheat, but mine is all

    I use both BrewSmith and Brewers Friend. They both have their differences that I like. Easy to

    that Brewers...

    I use the paint can opener that I get free when I buy paint at either Lowes or Home Depot.
