My name is Bob. I live in Fallon Nevada, about an hour east of Reno. I'm an old goat at 69. If you recognize my handle you have likely seen me on the AHA, Beersmith and Home Brew Talk forums. I do all grain batch sparge in the colder months and BIAB in the Summer. My favorite beer styles are APAs and IPAs. My other interests are curing, smoking and grilling meats, fly fishing. brewing hard cider, cooking, eating and drinking. Not necessarily in that order. I've been brewing beer for a little over 10 years.
