Hooked on Brewing
Lacing from my Golden Promise Pale Ale
Desert Blond Ale
In my opinion, part of the allure of home brewing is creating. If it was only about the beer, I would just buy it. For example, if you were to talk to 100 home brewers, there's a good chance that none of them would be doing it exactly the same way. Equipment, techniques, volumes, temperatures, ingredients, philosophies, etc. That leaves a lot of room for personalization, experimentation, and fun!
11/29/16: I added to the HOB Blog page - pictures and text of my latest brew day. *Note: all the new text will be in red.
Random beer trivia: Your spent hop waste is like poison for dogs! Please be careful not to dump your trub anywhere your beloved canine can get at it!!
*NEW: If you soak your carboys or kegs in PBW overnight like I do, I would NOT dump it on your lawn ... if the concentration of PBW is high enough, it will kill your grass.
What's on tap
Blackberry IPA 4.0
I am not a master brewer - just an avid hobbyist who is addicted to the home brew process, equipment, and of course the end result.
I am very fortunate to know two people who own local craft breweries, and another who owns the local home brew supply shop. Their knowledge has been extremely helpful, and I am looking forward to continuing my learning process ...
Golden Promise Pale Ale
11/25/16: The Blackberry IPA is flowing!
And, for the holiday season I will be brewing a clone of Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale. This is not your typical winter beer as it is not spiced. It's more of a straight up IPA, but with a beautiful red tint to it. Pretty simple ingredients, too. Anyway, this will be my first attempt at this clone so wish me luck.
*New Site 2016, WELCOME!
Nearing the end of a brew day ...
