The Year in Beer

This past Sunday marked a year since I’ve been brewing.  I just want to tell you first and foremost it has been a great year.  Homebrewing beer has been so rewarding for me on so many levels.


Danger IPA- Brew Day

Before I hopped off my Mr. Beer I’ve decide to make one more beer.  I wanted to use their HME (what comes in the can) along with some additional hops.  I picked up their Diablo IPA and 1/2 ounce of centennial hops.  Here’s how I broke it down: 00:00 Boil at 205 degrees 00:00 add…

So what to write?

So here I am, sitting at my computer, creating a blog and thinking…what they hell do I write for my first post?  In my About page I’ve already discussed my intentions. So I figured I’d jot down what started me on this brewing adventure. To put it simple, Mr. Beer.  I have been drinking beer for…
