I got burned out as well a couple of years ago, albeit for a much less significant reason than the loss of a loved one. I decided to start back with much simplified, stovetop partial boil with extract and specialty grains recipes. Right back where I first started, but this time with my 9 year old son as my brew helper!
We had so much fun, and the ease of the process and simple clean up was a joy as compared with the 10 gallon AG batches I was doing before the burnout. Have done starters for and brewed four batches over the last several weeks and have fallen back in love with brewing.
Now after all the time off and I'm reading about this BIAB method. It has me very intrigued, but I'm going to be careful to not let it consume my whole world again.
