Thanks. Might need to get you to tell me how you get your hands on fresh yeast. Everything I've bought so far has been DOA.
Church Point checking in. Anybody got any info on the DEad Yeasy Society in Lafayette. Tried emailinig them and joining the forum but aint got no responses yet.
Noob brewing out of Alexandria / Pineville area. Me and a pal are only a couple 1gal batches in after buying some kits. But have what we need for 5 gal and will start on that as soon as we finish the last 1gal kit we bought.
Our first was an American Pale Ale that turned out pretty decent other than a little over carbonated.
Next, we attended a local homebrewer's brew day and got 5gal to ferment off that, we just bottled it a week ago and it looks like we missed the carb mark on it as well. The couple of Grolsch bottles we taste tested popped like champagne lol
Got a Country Honey Pilsner on day 2 fermenting currently and the last 1gal kit will be the Caribou Slobber Brown Ale.
So far it's been an enjoyable experience and I'm looking forward to more of it. (even started gathering equipment to brew solo as well)
You might look into Beta Engineering in Pineville, LA if you haven't already. They do a lot of substation work. I worked for their parent company, Crest Operations for while before I got into the oil and gas industry. Great company to work for from what I saw.Anyone on here in the energy sector? I will be graduating in June with a degree in Electrical Engineering and three years of full time project management experience(mostly construction and capital projects for a large convenience store company). Any full time jobs leads would be greatly appreciated. Ill owe you a beer!
That's one of the reasons I started. Several hundred if not several thousand dollars later, I am still paying $9 for a six pack of good beer (although I buy it much less frequently). It's a great, fun hobby, but it probably won't save you much money.I'm in Thibodaux. Just picked up this hobby in June. Been wanting to give it a go and finally did it, mainly because tired of paying $9 for a six pack of good beer.
Yeah, you are probably right, but my wife thinks it does so that's what really matters LOL. It is fun and addicting. Only been doing it for a couple months but it's something I enjoy doing.That's one of the reasons I started.
