First, let’s start with what this site IS NOT..
It’s not a commercial brewery, and I’m not selling beer, wines or spirits (BATFE, please take note).
The ButtCrack Brewery site is simply my attempt to document my trials and tribulations in homebrewing.
I started homebrewing in the early part of 2011, or rather SWMBO wanted to try it, and I just went along for the ride. SWMBO quickly retreated from the endeavor when she discovered that there was actual cooking and cleaning required, while I quickly got hooked on the whole process. Our first attempt, a brown ale made with pre-hopped LME, came out pretty well, which encouraged me to try a pale ale made with LME and hop pellets. That success moved me on to a mini-mash with grain and LME for a Mandarin Hefeweizen. This finally led me to BIAB and AG brewing, which of course required a growing number of gadgets.
I hope to chronicle those and future sessions in this blog.
If you find the site informative, or funny, great, but it’s here mainly to remind me why I homebrew.
