I needed another hobby like I needed another hole in my head, so what did I do? After I bought the homebrew equipment went to Shane Company and bought an engagement ring. Figured beer and marriage are like, well I dunno what the hell I was thinking. Extract brewing wasnt enough so my third batch I made the move to all grain. Oh and forgot bottles, Kegging, and kegerator in the living room.

Tonight I just racked onto some Madagascar Vanilla Beans for a Bourbon Vanilla Porter that should turn out great.

Theres got to be some home brewers around here.

I've done it and still have my equipment. I made a couple of nice ales in the past but nothin' fancy. I gave my grandpa a sample bottle once and he said it was "OK, except for that last inch". I guess I forgot to tell him about the sediment! :)

The beer hobby is cheaper than the engagement ring...

Do we still have time to talk you out of it?...

You might adhere to a wise lawyer proverb...

If it drives, flies, floats or f****...rent it!!!... :D :D

Congrats I think!!!!...

I am always suspicious of home brews after I tried a neighbor's elderberry wine.

I had to stay within eyesight of the "facilities" for the next three days.

Now is a great time to brew! Cooler temps in the basement are yeast friendly so it's much easier to get consistent results. I buy supplies from Beer at Home on South Broadway in Englewood, or Williams Brewing online. Anybody need any Cornelius kegs? :)

Andy, after you get married, it takes a long, long time to go through 5 gallons of beer! Ask me how I know! ;)
