What’s a rule you always follow before you begin brewing?
"Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize. I duped myself by cutting corners during cleaning time and created the classic "Accidental Sour." It was a barley wine that still turned out great, but don’t cut corners during cleaning time."
Any advice for other brewers?
"If you’re leaving a fermentor in the kitchen, always use a blow off tube. Especially, if it’s a Russian Imperial Stout under a ceiling fan.
What’s an essential piece of equipment you won’t brew without?
"Like a typical dad, I spend tons of time horsing around with my son. The convenience of a Single Keg System versus bottling all of the beer I brew is a game changer. Bonus, it’s mobile and always receives a welcoming cheer when I bring it to parties."
