Homebrewers Roll-Call

Discussion in 'Beer & Ale' started by mintee, Jul 24, 2011.

  1. Just joined the site.  Glad to see this thread!  I used to brew a ton.  Recently divorced, I've taken it up again.  Last weekend I had a guys weekend with my 7 year old where we brewed a Fresh Squeezed clone and made up 4 lbs of ribs in the smoker.  It was a great day!  Just wanted to stop in and say hey.  Looking forward to learning a bunch about the art of smoking.

    Hello everyone my name Carlos Butler I'm from Vancouver, WA. I use to work for UPS for 8 years. I turned in my brown uniform to get serious about my hubbies BBQ and BREW! I started All grain homebrewing about 3 years ago. I just bought a new house I talked my wife into letting me set-up the brew station inside the garage. I brewed APA last wednesday using the Azacca hops.

  3. Cheers to all of you. It's been awhile since I've posted anything. In my opinion there is nothing better than smoked meat and a good brew to go with it. Add good friends/family and life is great.
    My hat is off to all of you. We (my brother and I) have been brewing for about 10 yrs now. Turned it into a business. We have done nothing but whole grain.
    I wish you all the best in your brewing. My glass is raised and hat tipped. If there is anything I can do to help then please let me know. We currently make 20 to 30 barrels a month on a 10 barrel system.
    Good eating and better brewing.

    Home brewer here. 10 years or so in. All grain BIAB brewer. Last beer was on Christmas night. A grapefruit pale ale for my wife mainly. I have a two tap kegerator made from an old Coke cooler my grandpa had. Cheers!
  5. What about ex-homebrewer? Did extract.

    Been brewing for about 5yrs now.

    All grain of course

    Gimme Another IPA (house recipe with Simcoe and Amarillo hops)

    Keg (started out bottling...that lasted only about a year)

    Favorite styles? I'm an IPA or PA guy, but I really love lagers too. I wish I had the room for a small freezer just to lager in. I would definitely brew lagers.

  7. Just started brewing!

    My girlfriends father bought my roommate and I a "northern brewing" kit with an IPA extract kit.

    It is currently in the second stage and in a week or so we will be bottling!

    So exciting to be brewing after being a beer snob for so long. After this first IPA kit we will be doing an Amber ale kit.

    My favorite styles are first and foremost free, and then I appreciate browns, ambers and IPA's a lot. My favorite microbrewery is probably kuhnhenn in my area.

    New to the forums but glad to see this!

    Bottle or Keg? Keg. Currently have a cream ale and a 10% double ipa (mosaic, nugget, cascade hops) on tap.

    Favorite Styles? All, but if I had to pick one style, definitely saisons.

    New to the forum also! Came here to learn more about smoking, and just noticed this brewing section, happily surprised! Brewing and smoking really do seem to go together.

    How long have you been brewing?:
    About 2 1/2 years now

    All-grain or Extract?:
    Started with extract, the last year and a half have been doing all-grain. And the last 4 batches of that have been BIAB.

    What was the last beer you brewed?:
    I did my first wheat beer last Friday.

    Bottle or Keg?

    Favorite Styles?
    Brown ales, Scottish and Irish ales, pale ales, cream ales, etc. Like just about everything. But, not a huge "hop head" though.
  10. I've been brewing for 3 years. So far only extract, but have plans to try BIAB and All Grain this year.

    Most recently brewed an Amber Ale and a Stout.

    Black IPA's, Stouts, Porters, Brown Ales, Wheat Ale and IPA's are favorites.

    I keg everything.

    I also keep bees, so I'm going to be making more mead this year and ciders too.

  11. Its been several years since I sold all of my equipment, but I have started to get the itch again.
    The brew technology has come leaps and bounds since I was last in the hobby - namely with the 'one pot' (aka BiaB - Brew in a bag) method. It has made all grain batches that much simpler.
    That and the homebrew conical market has exploded as well.

    IPAs, Porters, Stouts, and a couple of Sours are faves.
    Bocks (of any kind) make me wretch. But then again its been a while since I have tried one.
