Extract Era


 I started brewing right around new years even 2007. The Coopers kit I used turned out pretty good. Tasted like corona.  I immediately started to want to tinker, so I drove 400 miles to Anchorage to the only real homebrew store in the state. ( I buy my supplies from local liquer stores that stock them) He armed me with auto siphons, and other i gotta have goodies and well as started me on my hop addiction. He turned me on to adding spalt and tettnanger to the kits to tweak them a bit. I immediately realized that I needed recipes and to go scratch. From then on till the end of april. I had a close relationship with dry and liquid malt extracts. Ive made some sad beers, to a couple killer porters. But, the bug was too deep. I was starting to dream of all grain. 

And Ive now reached that point. Ive done 3 all grain batches and the first will be ready to taste this coming up weekend. But, thats another day in the life.
