In my finest cleanroom garb


Hi, I’m Adam. I’m a research chemist by day, a professional brewer on nights/weekends, and a husband and father the rest of the time. More than anything, though, I’m a student of efficiency and continual improvement.



To learn more about me, check out my path to financial independence.

To follow along with my progress toward FI, see my monthly net worth updates.

If you’re interested in homebrewing, here’s my beginner’s resource for picking up the hobby.

The primary purpose of this blog for me to track my progress in meeting my FI goals. Along the way, I will be sharing plenty of information on how I reduce spending, generate side hustles and invest the difference.

I will delve in to topics such as house hacking, chicken farming, and food shopping, all in the name of continual improvement

One theme I would like to maintain throughout the creation and growth of this site is originality. I began putting together my homebrewing guide because I saw the need for a one-stop resource for all things homebrewing. Likewise, I will focus my personal finance articles on topics that are unique and have not been covered adequately on other blogs.

The Brewing FIRE Commitment

I am committed to not becoming another also-ran blog. I will never teach you “how to start a blog”, nor will I review The Millionaire Next Door for the 500th time. To be honest, when some bloggers force themselves to publish too often, it begins to show. Since this blog is my hobby and not my profession, I will focus solely on quality and let the others give you quantity.

I don’t have time to waste writing content that wastes your time.

Hopefully, you will enjoy this site. I also hope that you may stumble upon a new topic that you didn’t originally intend to learn about.

If you’d like to get in touch with me, you can reach me through this contact form. I’m not really soliciting guest posts at this time, but if you make a great pitch I’ll think about it.
