    ABOUT ME

  • Fort Collins, CO
  • I've been brewing for a couple of years now. I tend to try everything once, but I keep going back to pale ales and Oktoberfests. The guy I brew with is a big wheat beer fan, so we do a lot of those as well.

  • Electrical Engineer

  • Aerosmith, Green Day, Stevie Ray Vaughan, DMB, Statriani
  • Office Space, Fight Club, just about any James Bond
  • BSG, Lost, The Office,
  • Snow Crash, Dune, Illium, Red Mars
  • I don't even know what got me into home brewing. I think I just decided one day to try it. I do a lot of cooking and I always want to "make my own". From bread to chips to macaroni and cheese, everything tastes better when it doesn't come from a box. I figured the same goes for beer.

    I sent you an email to order a fitting. I'm just posting here too because that seems to be what
    everyone does. I hope everything goes well at the hospital this weekend.Cheers.

    Very cool faucet. I was a few weeks away from ordering some 525's to complete out my new keezer
    build. Now, all the faucets can match. Thanks for making this available.

    Awesome. I think you're going to love the kegging setup. Let me know how the beer turns out. I
    got the urge for one after commenting about it. Turns out it ages well. I popped open one of my
    last 4 la...

    I've never done any oak aging that way. I suppose it would be OK, but you might outgass some of

    All of the fermentation steps in the recipe are done in the same vessel. I guess I should have
    elaborated better. The steps are just a diactyl rest. 14 days at 50, 2 days at 65, ramp back to
    50, and l...

    I've never added pumpkin to any beer, but I don't see why not. I think ginger would be a pretty
    good addition to this recipe. I'm planning on a gingerbread stout this year instead of the
    usual spice a...
