I know there are some other home brewers on here; Bwana and TJ for starters.

I'm brewing my first batch ever today. It's a German wheat. Looking forward to tasting this bad boy in about a month! :-) :-) :-)

That looks great. Appeals to me but I'm gay so that's cool.

Nice work, Chief.

Brewed a pastry Berliner with apricot, vanilla, and cinnamon with a touch of lactose. Kettle soured with Goodbelly. I'm calling it Charlie Weisse :-)



Club space where I brew.

Club space where I brew at.

Nice! I have a big batch of saison (~12gal) that I am splitting on Sunday. Half will get moved onto 4 diced cucumbers in secondary for 5 days and the other half will be kegged without cucumber.

I made a cucumber saison last year that was absolutely fantastic, I hope to replicate it.

That sounds delicious. I really like the idea of doing split batches with different additions. When I was thinking about joining this club I stopped by for a tour of the space and one of the guys there had a cucumber gose he made that completely blew me away.

We just got a recently emptied 30 gallon bourbon barrel donated from a local distillery this week. I've joined a 6 person team where we'll each brew a 1.121 gravity imperial stout, blend, then add to the barrel. I'm pretty stoked as the barreling process is new to me.

Re-brewed my Berliner adding pineapple instead of cinnamon and entered it in a sour comp (it's the one in front). It finished 4th. Some Swedish Fish monstrocity took 1st.

Fighting off some serious heartburn this morning.

This thread has kinda stalled out. I always enjoyed reading it any new news. New brews, equipment, etc?

I was into this several years ago, had to find another hobby when the wife made me stop growing weed. Now I have a license to grow and a metric shit-ton of brewing equipment I don't use taking up space.

Yeah I started it sometime in the 80s then abruptly stopped sold my stuff to a kid at work. My brother started about same time and has been going strong ever since. He upgraded 10 or 12 years ago and I latched on to the old equipment he didn't keep. Life happened and travel for work the kids and really couldn't find the time. Its been collecting dust but I'm getting the itch. It comes and goes every few years. I need to find my beersmith software again as I'm sure it requires a key. Brush up on the books I have and get busy as retirement isn't so far into the future.

Well I see Beersmith is now cloud subscriptions so that old software disk is probably not even valid anymore.

I tried beersmith once but never put the effort into really learning how to use it effectively. I always just used high rated recipes I found online and free programs/calculators. I doubt any of my batches would have won any contests but most were very good.

Anyway, if anyone reading this has any interest I'll let my equipment go for dirt cheap. I have at least $800-1k worth of stuff, everything needed to brew and bottle and then some. No c02 gear though, I always just bottle conditioned.

Selling any vacuum based equipment? Transfer pumps or all in one vacs?

Kegged this hazy boi over 10 weeks ago. Wanted to give the galaxy hops a week or 2 to simmer down and completely forgot about it. Was expecting oxidized trash but this is drinking amazing right now.
