and i love it. i have one of the best jobs ever. it's a dream come true. i bust my ass and it pays off.

i'm in charge of chillproofing and lagering. it's an incredible experience.

and to all of you who said i wouldn't be involved with the actual brewing...well you're wrong. i come home smelling like beer. i'm covered in wort, ruh beer, finished beer, everything by the end of the day. sometimes i'm up to my knees in beer.

i'll answer as many questions as i'm allowed, so ask away if you're interested.

First question: Where are you working and what is their claim-to-fame beer?

Second: Do you get free beer? If so...I hate you.

Boils:

Pretty envious I must say!! Money means little if you don't love your job. I'm too new to ask about lagering, however you better get something in your primary soon or you will be enjoying some of the pilot brew instead of your own good stuff.

Cheers.

What kind of money can an average beginning brewer expect to make?

I have a serious question for you boiler. Have you brewed Bud?

If so, I know you can't reveal any trade secrets, but would I, as a brewer who prefers to only use grain, hops, water, and yeast be disappointed or disgusted with some of the other things/adjuncts they put in their beer?

no, you would not be disappointed because everything that is in a bud they tell you.

barley malt, rice, and hops. seriously.
