Default Man, AG really IS that easy!

I'm currently on my 4th AG.

1st was almost totally disasterous (Still made beer though)
2nd was controlled panic
3rd Would have been OK, but it was so cold I was fighting ice-ups and a lack of focus due to my nuts freezing off...

4th? I'd just finished mashing in and realised I had no worries whatsover about the rest of the brew. Grey clouds parted in the sky, and a flock of tiny bluebirds flew down and built their nests in my underpants. It finally dawned on me just how fricking easy AG is!!!

It may have taken a little while, but man, this feels so good!! I think I've lost count of how many moments of epiphany I've had like this since starting brewing a year ago. But I know I likes it!!

Back, but I shifted round to the front.

Awesome, I do love when an AG brewday goes well, it can be quite relaxing, though I usually get some sort of excitement/issue during the day. I'm even happier now that I have a dedicated brew-space, most of my equipment stays up and ready. Eventually all of it will be ready to brew at a moments notice.

When I read that, I got a vision of Comissioner Gorden lighting up the sky with a huge beer mug logo, conpewter seeing it out the window at an important business dinner, and dashing off to brew some beer in the name of good vs evil.

Now comes the real fun of AG. Got your equipment together and a system that works.

It's NEVER enough! Now you will tweak and experiment. What if's will plague your mind as you drift off to sleep each night. Sudden insights into new designs will beotch slap you as you drive to work. System refinements will flood your mind when you should actually be doing the work they pay you for.

Yep, starting AG is easy. Not letting it completely take over your life? Hmmmmmmmmm

Congrats on relaxin' brews. I'm still doing AG with one pot and 1 burner so it's causes a longer day, but I'm starting to relax with it. Someday I'll have money to build my 220vEHLT. Then it's mashing in the basement while playing Xbox, then outside to boil. Those will be great brew days! Besides carrying the 12Gallons of runoff upstairs and outside. hmm Need a pump and a LONG hose.

Yep!! I noticed that any problems in the past were equipment related. (Fix those as they arise) Or equipment operator related (Relax, have a home brew)

The second brew's problems were drunk related, but we won't go into that
