What got you started brewing?

I was in search of the perfect beer and thought brewing my own would be quicker than trying every beer on the planet.

A little about your brewing philosophy

It’s important to know established techniques and the science behind brewing and I have a lot to learn, but it is also important to experiment.  You should of course have a plan and pay attention to the variables and results of your experiment most of the time, but every once in a while just say what the hell, close your eyes and try something crazy.

Any brewing related certifications?
