Neat article on homebrewing from Imbibe magazine. I've got the print version of it, and I'm sorely tempted to turn the studio into a Drew Carrey-esque microbrewery.

Working out of the basement in his two-story home in Bolingbrook, Illinois, Formanek is one of America's most-decorated amateur beer makers. He's a seven-time Midwest Home Brewer of the Year, and he's won 23 American Homebrewers Association medals--his crisp, effervescent pilsner, strong Scotch ale and potent Russian imperial stout all won silver in 2008's AHA competition. "You can't win them all," says Formanek, whose secret is pushing styles to their extreme, without creating extreme beers. "When I brew an American ale, it will be hoppier. If I brew a Scottish ale, it will be maltier. I accentuate characteristics, while still creating a drinkable beer."
