Former Homebrew Consultant/Regular Come and Brew It Radio Contributor

Background Info: 
Brandon got into craft beer in 1994 when he discovered beers like Samuel Adams and Pete's Wicked that had flavor rather than the standard American light lagers. His first words to his wife when they met were "Hi, I'm Brandon, do you want a beer?" He started brewing in the early 2000's for a year or so and moved to all grain after his first two extract batches. He started brewing again in 2010 after moving to Texas from California. He started with extract again, and once I made the switch to all grain, he never went back. To Brandon brewing is all about taking a bag of grain and making beer out of it.
