I am a person who likes to dabble in several different hobbies. In addition to homebrewing I also like mountain biking, woodworking, and recently started plinking on the guitar. I also like to read everything I can get my hands on.

This blog is written with the beginner in mind. I want to share some of my experiences with homebrewing but also to gain a broader knowledge and understanding of this wonderful craft. I love beer and I love trying to zero in on that perfect formula. I’ve never been accused of being a brew master but I do get pretty good reviews from friends.  I’ll keep things light and simple and with a little luck we can all have some fun with this.

I hope you will find this homebrewing  blog entertaining and informative. Please chime in with your comments or questions. I’ll do my best to answer all comments as quickly as I can. Please subscribe to stay updated.

  1. I was checking out AHA and bumped into your site. I noticed you must be in the same area as I am, i.e. Redskins, I live near Annapolis MD and have been brewing for the past 15 years. If you are any where near I’d enjoy checking out your setup.

    • Hey Scott,
      I’m in Richmond. I started brewing back in the early 90’s. I took a long hiatus and stated again a couple years ago. Let me know if you are ever in the area. Thanks for checking out the site.
      Happy Brewing!

  2. Clay,
    Love your site. I have been a homebrewer for 20 years. I have always wanted to set up an automated system like yours. My current system is very similar to yours without the automation. How does one figure out hot to configure the electrical box? PID? Thermocouples? Is your sysetm a RIMS or HERMS?


    • Derek-
      Sorry it has taken so long to reply. It’s been a busy few weeks around here.

      I know the box looks complicated but once you get into it things start to make sense. Same with your PIDs and thermocouples. Start with your box and gathering your components and go from there. Lay them all out on a table and visualize the connections. If you have specific questions let me know. I’m happy to help. Also, mine is a RIMS system.

      Good luck with things. I look forward to seeing pics of your progress.

      Happy Brewing!
