I've been brewing since spring 2008. The more I do it, the more I enjoy it, and I love learning new information and new techniques.

I really like the fact that brewing combines and applies knowledge from so many different realms, and much like cooking, ends up with the best results being considered as works of art as much of science and engineering.

comment Increasing the 'caramel and coffee tones' of my porter
I always get more coffee flavor with roasted barley, and more "ashtray" from black malt, but I may be using things in the wrong ratio.

comment Maple wood aging as opposed to maple syrup
and try to find Grade B Syrup. It's darker and has more "maple" flavor than the Grade A Syrup. Presumably, it would be slightly less fermentable, too, much like the various grades of molasses.

Why wouldn't you want to sample your beer?

This question could easily turn into a big list of books.

comment Coffee Beans for Homebrewing
This question is a bit too subjective, and could easily lend itself to turning into a big list of types of coffee.
