I'm a middle-aged male who has been homebrewing beer, cider, and mead for nearly a decade. I'm attracted to most beer styles, and I've rarely produced the same recipe twice. I currently work in the grocery industry, although I spent most of my life as a professional musician, performing on guitar (rock, jazz, and classical) and Renaissance lute. My other hobbies include bicycling, hiking, camping, and reading.
