    Creating a new hobby of storytelling

    Nice. I've always wanted to write a futuristic, dystopian, freight tale of fiction.. Ala Mad Max style. But I'm definitely no writer. I'll have to give this a listen when I get the time.

    Photos My Second Catch Out (NJ/NY)

    Awesome pictures and story. The "sunset at the Catchout" picture is especially bad ass. That ride up the Hudson is definitely one of the prettiest river runs on the east coast. My first time rolling into Selkirk had us pulled way up into receiving. Walked a few miles towards Steward's and...

    Thinking of going to Maine, Anyone have any experiences here?

    You got that right.. You can almost jog the same speed as Pan Am heading NBD.

    Your main problem was allowing the naturally occurring yeast to do the job. Using a packet yeast is much 1. Faster 2. Tastier (debatable) 3. Predictable Using the wild yeasts in the air is doable but you stand the chance of nasty tasting yeasts finding there way to your brew or just...

    Yeah.. I've always wanted to brew a beer with like a Durban poison or a haze strain. Alas I quit the cannabis industry.

    That's awesome. I imagine the Co2 levels produced by the brewing weren't exactly 1500ppm but it's probably better than no extra co2 and it's free.

    Ha ha. Yeah it was a decent beer. I was getting super cheap hops off of a guy who went out of business and was selling the remainder on Craigslist. I also had cleared out a 30ft area in the woods where I had a fairly decent garden and I planted some cascade and Chinook hops around the...

    Ha...yeah we'd trade beers all the time. His were markedly better. As for chestertown Cops arresting Santa.. I didn't know about that.. But it's definitely their modus operandi. One of the capitans that used to really have a hard on for us ended up going to prison for child porn...

    Tough times call for tough measures. But I was bottling in old Bridgeport and Ninkasi double deuce bottles. I was friends with the guy at the brew shop in town and he let me borrow a capper when my beer was ready. I'm originally from a town of 300 called Betterton. But I raised alot of hell...

    What I did was make 2.5 gallon batches. I used a 12 quart thrift store pot and used liquid malt extract which makes life Sooo much easier and quicker. I had a little tarped over outdoor kitchen that I boiled my wort under on a camp stove. I used the 15 minute pale ale recipe...
