Who Is This Guy?

Hi, I’m Peter. If you’re in the SCA, you might know me as Magnus hvalmagi.

I’m a scientist (food safety microbiologist in the regulatory sector), homebrewer, meat curer/processor, gaming geek, metal music geek, and a storyteller/poet in the skaldic traditions. I’ve embarked on the path of historical brewing research – where I think I’ve made some pretty interesting discoveries – and now, there’s no turning back.

I’m a pretty open book as far as contact goes. You can get me on Facebook or G+ as Peter Olsen.

If you’re on reddit, I’m thewhaleshark. Friend away!

You can find me on the SCA’s East Kingdom wiki as Magnus the Stout, too. Here, have a link:

    Nice blog, lots of great stuff! I’m also SCA – Denewulf Ivarsson of the Midrealm – and have a Norse-themed blog also, for my skaldic poetry. http://http://denewulf.wordpress.com/
