Hello-
Being a new-comer to this website I would like to thank everyone for the help received thusfar. I am pleased to say that the Framboise Lambic I'm in the process of attempting seems to be going well, largely as a result of information from this forum. Consequently, I would love to know some bio's on any of the frequent posters. The level of expertise suggests that brewing is far more than a mere hobby... Just curiosity.
Thanks
Chris

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Interesting "batch" of folks here... I work for South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control. Have been brewing for about 5 years now (mostly extract due to laziness. You know what they say about state workers!)Keep up the good work and keep the site dis"fun"ctional!
Thanks
Chris

Of course, it would be expected that you can get quite a lot done in 700 years, Eric!

B.S. Geology WVU class of 1992.

M.S. Hydrogeology Wright State - Dayton, OH 1994

worked as field geologist in CA for a year then moved to TN and developed skills as a numerical modeler of groundwater systems assisting design and performance of groundwater remediation systems.

Now in northern Indiana working for a large groundwater supply contractor as a Project Hydrogeologist. Lots of computer work but I do get to play with some really big toys from time to time.

throughout all of this I have always enjoyed great beer and over the last 5 years I've become obsessed with the deveopment of the best IPA (currently Jake's #3 IPA).

Also, enjoy my wife and kids (8 months and 3 yrs), mountain biking, backpacking, fishing, motorcycling, home renovation, and of course my dog Jake.
