Name: Ryan Crump
How long have you been brewing?: nearly 3 years.
Extract, partial mash or all grain?: I did a few extract batches before I upgraded to all grain, then I converted a Coleman cooler into a mash tun, I soldered the manifold together out of copper pipe and made slits in it with a hack saw. I get pretty good efficiency with it.
What is your favorite style to brew/drink?: Depends on the time of year, really enjoying hefeweizen and witbier right now since it feels like 110 degrees outside. Porter is great too when it gets a bit cooler.
What other tasty beverages do you ferment?: None, thinking of trying my hand at mead, cider and sake though.
What's the best beer you think you've made?: Probably an Imperial IPA that was very similar to Pliny the Elder, which was one of the beers that inspired me to pursue brewing.
Any other fun hobbies?: Road biking and hiking.
Conditioning: RIS, Berliner Weisse, Scotch IPA, SMaSH beer (Centennial)
Fermenting: SMaSH beer (Cascade), London Pride clone
Plan: Oktoberfest, Gose
