Hello from Texas

Unread postby mrpilsner » Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:35 pm

New to the forum and introducing myself, Tom.
My 20L Braumeister arrived Saturday and I spent today vainly searching for my new electric needs. Excited to finally have a Braumeister, I'm anxious for that first brewing session.
Born, raised and employed on the west side of Chicago, I'm retired for a year now and also living one year in north Texas.
I've brewing lagers for seven years, striving for a single recipe I can confidently reproduce consistently.
Thank you, Niels. I am very pleased to be a member.

I'm glad you joined! I hope you will be sharing some of your Braumeister pilsner experience in the future as I imagine other will love to get some good advise.

I still have to do my first lager, but I'm not in a hurry. Maybe next winter so it is ready by springtime.

No no no!! Seven years means, more than anything else, that I have squandered a LOT of time! I am an amateur and a novice who is, cleverly, hiding behind this new BM technology!

A bad brewer always blames his mash tun :D

Welcome, surely you have a consistently good lager recipe by now, the BM will hopefully allow you to make the wort more constant.
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Ha! Well, I HAVE blamed my mash tun!! It's on Craig's list along with all sorts of forsaken pricey gadgets, Tim. You're right about my new wort expectations. I'm lucky to have plenty of lagering space and I'm comfortable with the cold side.

And, Victor, thank you for your note. Short story: my daughter gave her boyfriend a brewing kit for Christmas a number of years ago. He began mentoring me and actually gave me a 5 gallon kit his uncle had never used. I broke so many sanitation rules!

Batz, thank you. I'll have a Blatz, Batz, and toast to you!
