I live in central Vermont with my wife, dog, and sheep. I helped found a local homebrew club in 2010, which (so far) has produced 3 professional brewers.
I brew in a small, dedicated space in my basement using an induction setup a few kettles and insulated coolers. I transfer water and wort via gravity and/or pump. I both keg and bottle. I am mostly brew 5-gallon (19l) batches, but occasionally brew 3-gallon specialty batches.
My wife and I do brew together occasionally, but we definitely talk craft brew and home-brewing together on our website and YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/gagehillcrafts).
I am also on Instagram (https://instagram.com/gagehillcrafts & https://instagram.com/rickscullyvt).
I am only getting started in recipe creation and I like the Brewer's Friend tool. My good friend and neighbor, Scott Russell, is the author of North American Clone Brews and so with his book I would often use his recipes or his recipes with some changes depending on what we could get at my (now defunct) local homebrew store -- where he and I both worked. I like most styles, but my go-tos are hop-forward IPAs. farmhouse ales, stouts, porters, and saisons. I also recently started making my own mead and melomel.
