Meet Scott Russell
I co-wrote the Seven Barrel Brewery Brewers’ Handbook with the late Greg Noonan, and I am the author of North American Clonebrews.
I was a feature writer and regular columnist for Brew Your Own Magazine for a number of years. I have been brewing my own beer and making mead, wine and cyder since 1990. I am also a National Beer Judge, certified by the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program). In addition to all that, I hold a PhD in French and spent about 20 years of my life as a high school French teacher…
I brew about every other week, pretty much year-round. Generally I brew all-grain, but will occasionally brew with extracts when experimenting with yeasts or exotic ingredients. When I am not brewing, racking, bottling or designing my next brew, I am writing a series of historical novels. I am a life-long New Englander, so naturally I am a huge Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins fan.
I recently joined Untappd – my phone is old and doesn’t support the Untappd app but I check in my beers via computer – look for me as ScottR – let’s talk beer!
