I am a kitchen brewer located in the great State of Maine. I produce for only household consumption and can count on one hand the store-bought beer I have had in the last year. I view brewing as a domestic activity and learn more every time I produce a batch. I have a 15 gallon kettle which I use and I usually BIAB and sparge briefly into another pot using a big old colander. I run a thin mash so this works well for a great tasting beer. I keg 85-90% and the leftovers go into bottles; except for my continual Orval experiment which all goes into 500 ml bottles. I must note that our water here is really good. We have a well drilled in granite ledge and the minerals and PH (7.8) are perfect for beer.
English Bitters, Saisons, IPA's, Porters, kolsch....I like a stronger beer generally with a good backbone but I have a love for good pub ale as well.
