A few Updates

Just wanted to drop in and let everyone know that I have added some more to the December Brew day page.

And if you look down you will see that the logo has changed somewhat. This was completely necessary, and to all the true Texans out there, I offer my deepest apologise for my oversight.



Hops and Malts Guides

What makes a Beer, the Beer that it is? Well, first of all, it is the Brewer. Every beer should be an expression of the Brewer’s personality. Each Brewer has an individual style and character; the Beer should be a natural extension of that character.

Well, that is where it starts on the spiritual side of brewing, but what about the basic physical side of the equation? Well it starts with the ingredients of course. Two of the most basic of ingredients of any brew are the Malts and the Hops.

With so many different Malts and Hops available for the Brewer to use, I found it hard for me to know where to start. I sat down one day (that lasted for almost a week) an decided that I would make myself a reference to put in my Brewing Book.

The information comes from many different sources; Brewing Wiki’s, manufacture’s web sites, retail web sites, and many other places. As much information is listed as I thought was relevant. The guides are by no means a complete listing but, they should still be helpful, or at least I hope they are.

Welcome to the Internet home of


I am a displaced Texan, living in Brussels for the next few years.  I have always loved beer, and thought that I knew what beer was, and what it could be.  But I say this with all humility, I had no idea it could be this good.

I guess living in the land of a thousand beers has started to twist me brain. I have been reading up on all the different styles of beers and brewing done here in Belgium and decided that even though I might not be able to do it better, I can at least try to do it well.
