    My Brewing:

    I have been brewing (off-and-on in the early years) since approximately 2007. Though I have brewed a number of all-grain beers, I prefer to brew partial-mash. I simply do not see that a cost-benefit analysis tends to favor the additional time, effort and mess of all-grain. Apologies to the all-grain enthusiasts out there.

    My Beers:

    I tend to favor British beer styles, including Irish, Scottish AND English ales. (I cannot seem to find a distinctly-Welsh beer).

    I try to keep most of the following styles on-tap at all times: an Irish red ale, a Scottish ale, an English ESB or mild dark ale, and an Englilsh-style Barleywine.

    I also try to keep two session-type beers: (a) something with an SRM-08 or lower (usually something like a Kölsch) for guests who insist that beer simply MUST be yellow, and (b) my Little Red Session Ale (described below).

    My current session beer is an experimental recipe of my own design. It has low alcohol (about 2.5%), a red color (about SRU-14), and malty flavor with very low bitterness. I call it Little Red Session Ale, as an homage both to the "small beer" of old and to LIttle Red Riding Hood. My label for that beer is currently my profile image.
