Name's Mike...I live in Fort Dodge, Iowa.
I'm a 44 year old, with 3 teenage monsters still living at home.
I'm a former chef/restaurant manager. After 20 years in the industry, I burned out and now do Quality Assurance at a pet food by-product processor.
After about 7 months of the new job, I discovered I missed cooking. So I started converting my kitchen to handle all the cooking. About the time I started, a friend suggested that I try homebrewing.
We are now enjoying really good beer at dinner every night. My 2nd batch is in the bottle.
As soon as I can get a little money, I want to build a kegarator. It'll be tricked out to honor my other favorite thing in life.....NHL hockey. I already have 3 tap handles. 2 Minnesota Wild, and one vintage Minnesota North Stars. I didn't always live in Iowa...
