Maybe I should start with the words "Dear Diary", but somehow Idon't think that's right.
Anyways, I thought I'd put up my first Blog post and show:
1. a Little bit about me
2. what I did last night...
So, I'm a born and Bred Christchurch Guy, who started his homebrew Obsession 6 months ago. I really found something enjoyable too, and it's not just about drinking the beer you made, it's about flavours, and different experiments etc. I mean I always loved Science, when I was at school.
I have a wonderful Girlfriend who puts up with this, albeit she gets to drink the spoils, which she certainly doesn't complain about, she gives good feddback and would be the most honest Critic, for improvements to be made.
We have Leo the Staffy, who seems to like mopping up the spills etc.
SO, onto what this blog is all about.....BEER!
I've been doing this hobby for about 6 months, and have just started doing All Grain, allbeit with some hiccups along the way.
I entered one Beer into NHC2012 in association with SOBA NZ, and scored 27/50 for my American Pale Ale, which was only a Partial Mash, and for those who don't know what that means, its a mix of Specialty Grain/malts and malt Exteact, which is the maltedsugar already removed and either dried or turned to a syrup style liquid.
That's my first Post, and next Up will be the information on the Brew I made last night...
