Interest in brewing beer at home has been a three-year pursuit that took Spangler from a startup kit and basic how-to books into commercial brewing manuals and national homebrewing competitions. Recently, in Denver, he won the "best of show" award as homebrewer of the year at a national competition sponsored by the American Homebrewers Association, a hobby brewers' group. In 1986, he won the "best of show" in home beer brewing at the Hamilton County Fair in Cincinnati. Spangler isn't resting on his laurels. He is delving more deeply into the attractions of brewing European-style, dark beers. "I used to do a lot of fishing. But this works out better — it's more productive ... I do it between the hot dogs and chili on the stove. I've got two little ones running around," he said of his sons, Nicholas, 6, and Russell, 3. "When they go to bed. 1 go and brew beer.'' His wife, Vickie, helps him bottle his hobby. Then they get to reap the rewards of a job well done. "1 like the exotic, heavy beers. I like drinking them and brewing them. You're onlv limited bv your imagination," Spangler said in an interview. "The whole thing of brewing is to relax and have a beer. It's not hard work." Spangler, 35, sells office furniture in Cincinnati by day. He uses his off hours to tend his vats, tubing and other brewing equipment at his suburban home in nearby Erlanger, Ky. He started homebrewing three years ago as a beginner, learning about the various grains and brewing techniques. He has graduated to more exotic beer recipes and to reading 600-page, commercial manuals for beer brewers. "It's pretty heavy, pretty deep, pretty technical. But you can apply some of it," Spangler said. He won his most recent award — competing against 718 contestants — by brewing a thick, Belgian ale which lie calls the Toadex Bloatarian Abbey Ale. Spangler prefers the richer body and taste of the heavier, European beers to the lighter, more thirst-quenching American beers. "But I'm not putting them down." he said of American beers. "Those who are serious about beers drink them all."

The next level is what is known as a microbrewer, a person or group that sells the product commercially and may distribute it to a region. Spangler says he knows of about 50 microbrewers in the country. They brew as much as 100 barrels of beer a year, selling perhaps 12,000 to 13,000 bottles. Because of their limited production capacities, micro- brewers often charge discriminating customers $1 or more per bottle. Spangler hopes to increase his brewing capacity, but doesn't envision becoming anything more than a small brewer. He is president of Bloatarian Brewing League, a Cincinnati-area brewing club, whose members meet periodically to discuss the finer points of home brewing with seasoned veterans and newcomers. Newcomers can get into home brewing with an investment of $50 for a startup kit, Spangler said. Brewing accidents, such as explosions resulting from improperly prepared batches, aren't common and can be Childhood asthma serious DENVER (AP) - Childhood asthma can be much more serious than many people think. Nearly 1,500 children in the United States die from the chronic disease each year and the death rate is on the rise, according to medical experts at the National Jewish Center for Immunology and Respiratory Medicine here. The experts say children who have trouble adjusting to the disease are the most likely to die from an asthma attack These children frequently: — Have emotional disturbances, depressions and-or family problems; —Disregard their symptoms; —Use their asthma to manipulate others. Doctors advise that parents of asthmatic children with such problems, or demonstrating such behavior, should seek medical and psychological evaluation and treatment for their children.
