After a 19 year hiatus from beer making, i decided to take it up again.
Unfortunately all my brewing equipment was left back on Kauai when we moved back to the mainland so I am slowly putting together my brew supplies again.

Hoping it turns out OK smile

Not me, but a good friend in Linda Vista brewed some fantastic beers. He won several medals at the Del Mar Fair, I guess it's called the county fair now?! Anyway, he had years and years of practice and it was awesome . He used to park early down at Mission beach in the summer and open the side door to a nearly full kegger of His beer! Having a few watching the roller skate babes go by.

Good show! Bring some of your beer out for a desert adventure.

I Have friends living on Kaui since the 70's. My Father in law is over on Oahu. Good times
My fav beers are probably Stone and Long Board but NOTHING beats a draft beer poured in a 400 year old pub in Wales or LondonToast

A good friend owns Culver City Home Brewing Supply if you need anything. My dad used to make home brew out in our garage in Chula Vista.

I have made about 6 batches over the last couple of years with 4 of them turning out pretty nice, one that was sort of blah and 1 that LOOKED awesome after bottling but ended up tasting vinegary. (I keep trying it every month or so to see if it improved, but it is a lost cause) In the meantime I have been collecting some more equipment (another carboy, wort chiller) and plan on trying again in the next few weeks. Came into possession of an older restaurant fridge that was used as a sandwich station. It is big enough to hold a carboy or 2 so I might try my hand at a lager. Sometimes, it is a lot of work and waiting to find out that it didn't work......: )
