Brewer Bio TMX
« on: March 05, 2015, 02:47:01 pm »
Hello AHA:

My Name is Tim Mayeux, and I have been home brewing since 2008. In that time I have had to take a few extended breaks due to work related travel. I am from a small town just north of Galveston, TX but currently brew out of Colorado Springs, as that is where the Army has sent me.

Although the made up name for my Brewery has changed from Old Republic Brewing, to Texas Ale Works, both in honor of my home state, I have never actually brewed beer in Texas, soon though, very soon!

I am not a member of any brew club, and while I have been known to go and brew with a buddy once or twice, I usually brew alone because I get started so early and no one wants to get up on a Sunday morning.

I don’t have to many disaster stories, other than I had a little to much of my own product while another batch was fermenting and I thought it would be a good idea to dip a cup and my whole arm into the fermenter to get a sample, well a week later a dumped the batch as it smelled like rancid Band-Aids.

I used to name my beers, but not any more, too much pressure, now they just get numbers, but here are a few of the labels I have made

I currently brew on a 10g eHERMS rig built around 15g SS pots.  It only has about 50 gallons on it, and we are still getting to know each other.  It was put together while I was deployed to Afghanistan, and waiting for some TLC and assembly when I got home.

I have and American style wheat (first wheat brew) and a Hop Burst IPA planned for my next brews.

Ferm 1: Irish Red Ale
Ferm 2:

On Deck: American Wheat

Keg 1: Un-Common
Keg 2: Switchback Stout

Total Gallons brewed (2015) - 10

Awesome! and yes, thank you for serving!

Worse places to be stationed than Colorado Springs... grew up there and miss it plenty. Take a drive up to Woodland Park and have a beer or three at BierWerks. Love that place!
