Anyone in BOC-land homebrew beer? This past weekend since we got STORMED or Blizzarded (if thats a word) out of fishing- Ice hunks the size of desks were coming in on 8-10 foot rollers, busting up against marquette bay's seawall, flying 20 feet in the air and crashing on the pier... not quite the thing you'd want to dodge whilst fishing for whitefish. In lieu of NOT fishing, my brother showed me how to make beer. (a fair trade in my book) We went through a scotch creme ale recipe and it is now burping away in an airlocked carboy in my "wife's office", now known as "MY brewery". LOL (until she gets home from visiting her mom this sunday, then the contents of room will transform from "wife's office" into "the reason for OUR heated discussion", then possibly "my new sleeping quarters/brewery".) But lets not borrow worries from the future, and besides, thats irrelevant.... We're here to talk beer. Who brews? How long have ya done it, what advice can you give, what suggestions or shortcuts can you offer?
