    You know you're a home brewer when?

    Catch yourself laying on the ground watching yeast go haywire in the carboy for 20+ minutes. It's like a huge, biological, beer producing lava lamp.

    This site taught me how to brew. I'm now the VP of my area's 20+ year old brew club.

    So long as you're having fun, that's all that matters. :mug:

    This site taught me how to brew. I'm now the VP of my area's 20+ year old brew club.

    As the title says, I started brewing with the help of this site and Papa Charlie's book "The Complete Joy Of Homebrewing Vol 3". If all goes according to tradition, I'll be the President of my homebrew club, DRAFT come January. So, I'd just like to say "thank you". Homebrewers are a rare...

    What are you drinking now?

    A lot of my new English Bitter. Beers like this make me wish I was set up for 10+ gallons.

    I'd do a partial mash, but just replace the 2-Row with a can of the lightest LME you can find. The MO won't have any issues converting itself.

    Blonde Ale Bitter Blonde

    I finally got around to brewing this again, except using the new WLP 090 yeast. I'm drinking the first fully-carbed pint from the keg. I forgot how much I love this beer! The MO really came through this time and it's wonderful. I'd recommend this recipe to a friend.

    So I make these tongue-in-cheek beer reviews...

    Thought you fellas might enjoy some video beer reviews that aren't super dry, or done by someone that takes their hobby too seriously. Or you might hate it - and that cool. Cheers!

    WLP001, I'm sure US-05 will yield similar results.

    And on that note, the keg is kicked. I need to re-brew!

    Here's a pint of the Amarillo/Cascade/Simcoe batch. I took a growler to my last club meeting, people seemed to dig it!

    Blonde Ale Bitter Blonde

    I'm drinking a pint of the simcoe variation right now - it's really tasty! Again, it isn't overly bitter at all. I gave my BMC boss a bottle after he found out I was a homebrewer, now he's wanting to "donate" to my brewery for a growler fill. That said - I think I'll stick with the...
