I've been brewing since I was a wee nipper, mostly extract but I took the all-grain route two years ago and I will never look back. I love this website and have found it so useful. I hope I can learn more from all your wealth of experience. I specialise in American Pale ales styles - the hoppier the better. Even in Scotland we can get U.S. hops like Cascade, Amarillo and Simcoe, but there are still those (me included) that are still attracted to the historic dark arts of using bog myrtle, heather and spruce tips. I hope to one day share some of my own tales.
