Welcome to my blog, it is my intent to chronicle my adventures of home brewing as well as report on local craft breweries. I am getting ready to brew a nice hoppy American Ale from an Austin's kit later this week and will comment as it progresses. In the mean time, I am quaffing a fine limited IPA from Yazoo here in Nashville. It is really over the top with the hops, 7 count em, 7 types of hops! WOW!!
There is something different about folks who brew their own and appreciate local craft breweries and this is pretty much what this blog is all about. So welcome and raise a mug!
The tales and ales of home brewing, local craft breweries and hop gardening.
I started brewing about 1996 beginning with extracts. I quickly moved into partial mash due to the contraints of a small upstairs apartment. I brewed some good beers for a couple of years and then moved and my equipment went into long dormant storage. I took up bewing again in 2007 and still brew partial mash. Why? because it takes less than four hours a session.
I also have an appreciation of fine craft beers and local breweries. Yazoo in Nashville TN is home turf.
