Re: Any home brewers?

I manage Idaho and most of Washington for Odin Brewing. You'll see our dragon handles a little bit around Boise and Sun Valley, my bottles are in the bottle shops and I got us into Albertsons starting next year. A few big grocers around Boise have us too. The beer is excellent and worth trying, I'm going someplace new because of pay/respect issues, but can't talk about anything just yet. I'm literally making about 30k per year less than I should  sadbanana

I know Odin.  Haven't had much by them but I do see the bottles around town (Brewers Haven, the Albertsons at Eagle/McMillan, etc.).  I've had their kolsch, I think that's the only one I've tried.  Sorry to hear it's not working out, I know the brewing industry pays pretty terribly and can be not so fun.

Some hiccups but successful.  Started with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone, ramping up quickly to a KBS clone this weekend big_smile.

Re: Any home brewers?

My blueberry cream porter I just made turned out fine, but I'm not a fan of brewing in a high-rise apartment downtown... Had my first bottle explode during carbonation (I assume it was overcarbed, but I prime the whole batch, not per bottle, and the bottles I've had we're fine so who knows). Ruined all of my 6 pack holders and cases since my downsize during the move.

Re: Any home brewers?

Kegged 20 gallons tonight.  Bushed.  Good to fill some taps though, this will put me at 5/6 flowing.

Re: Any home brewers?

20?! Holy crap. FYI, have to come to Boise in 3 weeks for my dad's memorial  sad I'm sticking around for Treefort to try and improve my mood and hoping to go to a Subie meetup if there's one that week. I may also try to interview with one of the local Brewers if they're hunting for a Washington Sales manager.

Re: Any home brewers?

Yeah, big day.  Sorry to hear about your dad, feel free to hit me up if you want to swing by.  Always beer on tap here.  Who are you talking to locally?  I imagine Sockeye and Payette are looking to move into WA.

Re: Any home brewers?

Those are the 2. I'm sitting in the Denver airport as we speak after an Anheuser Busch interview they flew me out for. Shoot me an email to bradrcr@comcast.net when you have a chance, I'd love to try some local beer. For all I know I might be forcing a 10 Barrel brewer to give me some 'training' when I'm in town...

Re: Any home brewers?

Bump, took a deposit on the electric setup yesterday, taking up too much space and getting no use.  Keeping my gas setup for now.  Who here still brews?

Re: Any home brewers?

Some... not much these days. Hopefully come spring my dad and I will brew a few... too cold to go sit outside and brew...

Re: Any home brewers?

It's been *many* years since I brewed.  I don't see myself doing it again in any reasonable time frame either.  I've just got too much else going on.

Re: Any home brewers?

Same here, the opportunity cost rose to the point that it's not worth the time any more.  Always too much more going on.

Re: Any home brewers?

I've got a Belgium Tripel ready to be kegged. Time to brew another so it's ready when this one runs dry. Probably going with something dark like a porter.

I brewed a heavy scotch ale at a friend's place today. I didn't see his recipe, but it used something like 22 pounds of grain.


So far I have learned nothing. But that's probably as much my fault as yours.

Re: Any home brewers?

The beer business has totally killed my brewing. At this point I'm waiting for one of the small scale (gallon or less, drop in ingredients) systems to be perfected before I get back to it. However, I've been with Goose Island for about 6 months now and they periodically make beers with employees from different departments, so I'm hoping I get the offer. Last beer I brewed was earlier last year assisting at the original Elysian Brewing company on Capitol Hill in Seattle before I took this job.
