    Punkin' Ale Interview with Reno_eNVy

    Question #1. How did you start brewing?

    Answer: I got a summer job at BJ's Brewery in Reno and, even though I was doing grunt work (filling/hauling kegs, climbing into and cleaning out the MLT), I fell in love with the process and the culture. I started researching how to homebrew, stumbled upon HBT, and obsessively read as much as I could.

    Question #2. When in your homebrewing career did you make your first beer that you considered more than just “good”?

    Answer: In my first couple years of homebrewing I had to make cheap batches so I made a lot of BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde. I was also using subpar, jerry-rigged equipment. I felt like I finally did something right about two years into the hobby when I was able to make BM's beer without noticing any off-flavors.

    Question 3. What would be the best advice you could give someone that just started homebrewing?

    Answer: Enjoy the process and don't get stressed. When I started home brewing, brew days were sometimes stressful because I was always concerned about the next step and never gave myself time to relax.

    Question #4. Is this beer the best you have made so far, or are there others that we have yet to see?

    Answer: I'd love to say the barleywine I've let age for 6 years and tasting each year is my best but that was kind of a happy accident. My best is most likely my non-traditional Finnish Sahti. I did a lot of research on the style and I am always shocked at how well it comes out.

    Question #5. Making a beer worthy of this list can’t be an easy task, what kind of process and thought went into a homebrew like this?

    Answer: The recipe was the result of experimentation over a couple years. The first try (extract) was a disaster, complete with floating globs of pumpkin in the final product. With a couple more tries using extract and steeping grains I was able to nail down the right amount of spice to add. After upgrading to all-grain and converting the extract recipe (I can't take credit for this. THANKS BEERSMITH!) the first attempt was a success and is what you see on the recipe page. However, it still took a while to figure out how best to avoid stuck sparges.
