    ABOUT ME

  • I like, or rather need to do things for myself. I started years ago growing my own fruit trees and gardening. I also enjoyed good beer. So it was natural for me to see what ingredients I could grow and brew for myself. I also was a machinist for years and have some mechanical ability which enabled me to create a decent system. I grow 3 kinds of hops and use my own blackberries for a very good wheat beer I brew. I built a very nice kegerator with 3 on tap usually. I have a converted fermentation fridge and would like to convert my gravity fed system into a RIMS.

  • I have always been an avid do-it-yourselfer. I grow many different vegetables and fruits, and at the same time loved good beer. You can always taste the difference between fresh food and just figured the same principle should apply to beer. How right I was! I try to use as much of my own homegrown hops (Williamette, Cascade and Goldings) in my recipes as possible. I've also used my own Arapaho blackberries and blueberries in some of my wheat beers.
    I'm a small time shop with a regular buddy that assists me. I've invested around $2,000 in equipment over the past couple of years and intend on growing. It is a PASSION!
  • ALL Grain 90 min. IPA with all homegrown hops. I'm gonna try a combination of Cascade, Williamette and possibly some Goldings. 10 gallons. I will be kegging half and bottling the rest.

    I was planning on filtering this from the keg and then dispense. I didn't know if there were
    enough alpha acids (natural preservatives) to keep the beer from infection. Also, wouldn't the

    before pitching.
