    Posted in: Beer

    I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent two days this weekend at the Trop, watching the Tampa Rays playing the Orioles.  The games were good (well, the first one was) and the better was awesome.

    I’ve been pouring beer for more years than I can count, however during most of those years I didn’t care about how I poured it or even if I was pouring it correctly. The result was a lot of badly poured beers and even some alcohol abuse with beer overflowing out of my glass (or […]

    Posted in: Home Brewing

    After every brew day, I’m left with a pound or two of mashed grains. Some brewers throw them out with the trash. More environmentally conscious brewers put them in their compost heap.
