So I've been asked to create a homebrew fanpost...
Not sure where to start. I brew beer. I brought some to LSB Tailgate I and II. People liked it. From what I can recall, there are two or three other homebrewers who are active on LSB and several more that may be interested in the hobby. Basically, when making beer, I heat water to a desired temperature, add it to crushed malted barley and wait one to two hours. After that, I drain off the liquid which has now converted the starch in the grain into a sugar, leaving behind the grains and collecting a sweet liquid known as wort. I then add more water to the grain to rinse off any remaining sugars that are left in the grainbed. I drain this again until I collect my desired amount of wort for this batch. The wort is boiled for at least 60 minutes while I add hops at different times to get bitterness (60 minutes), flavor (30-15) and aroma (15-0). I then cool the wort to under 70ºF as quickly as i can and then pitch yeast. The KEY to good beer is temperature control during fermentation. I ferment all my beers for a minimum two weeks, then, depending on the ABV and beer style, it's either in the kegs or into secondary to get it off the yeast.
I can go into further detail and answer any questions in the comments. My working name for my 'brewery' right now is 4-6-3 Brewing. I don't really name any of my beers as I'm not that creative and I just usually call them by their style name.
Brewdays can be a bit boring as it's about 5 hours of watching liquid heat up and then boil, but I always welcome visitors. I usually just set up camp in the garage, jam some music and smoke a cigar or two. Plus, you can't brew great beer without sampling some of your previous efforts during the brew session. I try and brew on Saturday and Sunday mornings as early as possible to beat the heat.
If homebrewing ain't your thing but beer is, lets talk beer. I don't have a favorite beer. I've been drinking a lot of Miller Lite recently as it tastes great in hot weather.
And, just to add a pic, here's my kegerator.
And my favorite pic of my 4 yr old. He was two at the time and we have a signed copy.
