Hello, I have been brewing beer since 1992. It all started with Charlie’s Barshack mead recipe. While it was not a complete success, I pushed on with the can kits that were available at the time. Lacking variety, I gave a brief rest to brewing and focused on other hobbies, only to come back. I quickly took on all grain and never looked back. While I was living in Seattle, I joined my first club, then later after moving to Houston joined the infamous Foam Rangers, but alas life moves on and I found myself back in St. Paul where it all began. I have a deep passion for brewing, I enjoy teaching techniques, and sharing successes and failures. Moreover, I enjoy the friendships I have formed through brewing, I have even picked up a few medals from time to time. I enjoy working with like-minded individuals and look forward to working for you.
