    Living near the city with the most breweries per capita is hard. Cause I don't have a car to get to Portland LOL! And the cost of a six pack keeps rising with every year. I found it cheaper to just do it myself. Currently I am an extract/partial mash brewer. I don't really have the space to go much further, but even doing this is allowing me to get flavors that just don't exist on the shelves.
    I make beers that are really not available on a consistent basis to me. I love deep malt like Wychwood's Hobgoblin and other dark english ales, ESB's, nutty browns, etc. Living in the PNW what I get most of the time is...IPA.
    I haven't had a whole lot of luck with really strong dark beer like imperial stouts or adding bourbon. A matter of practice I suppose. Glad to learn from people who have done it before though!
    My favorite activity is creating recipes. Whether I intend to actually brew them or not. I love the research :D

    Welcome, glad to see you finally posting. ;)

    I have a lot of recipes I've just messed around with but haven't brewed yet.

    Hello. If you can do a full volume boil, consider Brew in a Bag brewing, if you want to do all grain. All you’d need besides the full volume boil is a bag. ​
