I've been making beer since 2002. I started making extract beers, but started
doing all-grain after a little more than a year. It's been a bit cumbersome at
times due to the lack of space I have at home, but I think I've found a workable
solution: the heatstick
. It's high-powered electric brewing that anybody can use
without having to put in permanent wiring, so even an apartment dweller can use
it. All it needs is 240-volt 30-amp service somewhere in your home; an electric
clothes dryer or an electric stove can provide this.
I've been cataloging the beers I've had since some point in 2007, starting first with
a text file within my Treo before migrating to a web-based setup that you can take
a look at here
. It's mostly just what,
who makes it, and where I had it, with occasional links to BeerAdvocate
for more info when I remember to throw them in. If a beer really impresses me, I might
throw in a short writeup, but this isn't intended to be a review site. It's more for
my information, so when I'm out and about, I can tell if a beer on offer someplace is
something I've had before. (The look-and-feel is very plain...kinda like Craigslist, so
it loads quickly over a cellphone data connection.)
You'll find some of my recipes over at the SNAFU website
in the recipe section
