in reply to OT: PerlMonks Brewers

Excellent topic.

I've been homebrewing down here in the humidity for nigh 12 years.

All of my brews thus far have been ales (no lagering fridge until recently) and meads of great variety. For the ales, I typically do partial mashes since I don't have my full grain brewing system yet (which I plan on custom building).

I'm a hop head when it comes to beers. Though I shun no varieties and can appreciate most if not all, I find myself returning again and again to a Sierra Nevada Celebration clone I affectionately refer to as "Hop Damn!" APA.

Another perennial favorite, around November or so each year, is a light-on-the-sweet-n-spice pumpkin ale made with fresh baked pumpkins as an adjunct.

As for the final stage...I grew tired of bottling (ales) a while back and went with a kegging system. Kegerator!

If any perl brewers are out and about in Houston, I'm game for a brew-in or some perl talk over a frothy.

    mmmmmm kegs.. I've got an old freezer, 1 keg, and some stainless tubing but the Perl has kept me too busy to put it together so I'm still washing, rinsing, and bottling for each brew.. bugga.. gotta get that sorted.

    Coopers Canadian Blond is my current tin of choice.. (Coopers Pale Ale if buying the "real" stuff) mmm probably not classified as real brewing compared to some of the monks here, but the result is real enough.. 8)
