Hello ...new to this forum .....
« on: June 07, 2011, 08:47:48 PM »
I justed wanted to say hello and say that I am new to the forum and have been brewing for @ 1 year and 6 mos. now. Started with Mr. Beer and have moved into extract and partial mash , no all grain yet and have three 5 gallon fermentors and secondaries. I have six , five gallon batches under my belt with the majority of last year using the Mr.B kits.

Anyway hope to use this as a resource to improve and grow my brewing skills.

Welcome bosoxsbrews,

 I'm Tubercle, the forum whipping post.

 Ask any question you have that you think will improve your brewing skills and I will try to answer it.

 Shortly someone (or several) will come along and and contradict me because really, I don't have a clue after 20 years of trying.

 But, first and foremost, what ever you worry about the most when it comes to brewing, just let it go and enjoy instead.

Welcome to the forum.  How were your Mr Beer experiences?  Did they come out pretty decent?

+1, nothing wrong with extract. I've been doing all-grain pretty well for two years now but am making an extract recipe next week.

Thank you to all for a nice welcome  .... I have 3 more batches to brew before I take the summer off ( hard to keep temp even in the basement ) plus its a nice break and the pipeline is still pretty full.

I will be brewing a Peanut Ale ( a kit from my LHBS ) , a Sam Smith Taddy Porter clone and a Moose Drool clone.


BTW ... Go Sox .... 1 down 2 to go .

Welcome to the forum.  How was your Mr Beer experiences?  Did they come out pretty decent?

Overall it was a good expierence. Everything came out pretty good and some of it very good . I have zero complaints on the Mr Beer expierence. It is a great way to see if you are really into the hobbie and it served as a great springboard into the 5 gal realm and beyond.
