Home Brewing Biography
Home brewed long ago, back in the day of bleach and secondary fermenters. I have had 1 best of class and 1 best of show in local competitions, (extract/steeping grains). Looking to get back in to it again soon but I try to stay informed until I do. Had a pretty good kegging set up and bottled as well, Lost every thing in a fire and have yet to replace my brewing gear. (: Now back in business with some new equipment!!! Woo-Hoo!!! Again, the same style of brewing but now w/ a Fermonster and Star san. (LOL)
