congrats on the AG! i hope i kegged my last grain/extract yesterday? going to the local HBS this weekend and plan on buying my ingredients for my first AG. i noticed your from Houston? i'm from outside Beaumont. did you know that St. Arnold's is having an American Homebrewers Association membership drive this Sunday? it's from 1-4 pm, and entry fee i believe is $34? it covers your one year membership to the AHA, plus they are going to tap a cask, have some homebrew shops there, etc. Should be cool.
keep us posted on the american brown!
