Why I homebrew is simple. I am a maker by nature. I am a machinist by trade and I enjoy designing and creating something out of nothing precisely and deliberately. I also love to cook for people. Homebrewing combines them both. I get a real sense of pride and accomplishment when friends and family tell me they like a beer I brewed and designed better than something they can buy at the store. I brew because I love the fact that I like a lot of my beers as much or more than anything I can buy. I really like being an integral part of the brewing process. It all starts and ends with me and I know EVERYTHING about all the beers I brew. It also doesn't hurt that I can brew craft brewery quality beer for less than 25% of the price.

I love the process as much and sometimes even more than the final product itself.

I love designing, brewing and then tasting which ultimatley tells me if my design process is solid or I just get lucky once in a while. The numbers are turning towards solid design more and more with each new brew.
