Conner MacLeod- Concord, CA
« on: July 01, 2016, 03:09:49 PM »
   

     How's it going everybody,
been lurking the forum for a couple years now and finally am participating.

   I've been brewing on and off for about 8 years now and finally sucked it up and rebuilt my setup to be a little more apartment friendly since that's where I am at for the foreseeable future. I tend to brew a lot of hoppy darker beers, Brown IPAs and India Red Ales have been my thing recently. I brew 5g batches on a gravity setup and ferment in my homebuilt Kegerator/Fermentation chamber that I built out of redwood to appease the girlfriend. I love tinkering and end up modifying my immersion chiller or something else brewing related every batch.
      You can find me at The Hop Grenade in downtown Concord a couple days a week (live 2 blocks away now, it's dangerous) and besides brewing I spend a lot of time climbing in Yosemite and playing/watching soccer.
Cheers,
Conner

Hey, Conner, nice to meet ya!  I've only been to the Grenade once, but I can see how it would be dangerous to live that close!

I thought there could be only one! :)

Welcome.  I've been wanting to get to the Grenade since it opened, but I'm on the other side of the country.  Someday.

Connor-
Welcome

I thought there could be only one! :)

Great movie reference!  That was exactly what went through my head when I saw his name.

I guess Connor can tell us exactly what the flavor profile of a wee heavy was going back to the 1500s.

Yeah my parents had a sense of humor lol, and sorry, couldn't tell you much about Wee Heavys. Not a fan of Scottish beer at all. Ill stick to Scotch if I'm have something from Scotland.
