Default Add Brewing to the list of things I quit doing and regret.

Miss you guys and gals.

I'll be back brewing sooner or later, hopefully by years end.

I think I got "too" into it and had way more stuff than I needed. It became a chore and not a hobby.

Time to start over, scale back a bit, and make good beer.

I think you need to be back sooner rather than later. Get back soon.

If needed, go back to basics. Buy an extract kit and stove brew. That way there is little planning, no weighing/milling etc. Make it simple, take your time and enjoy the results.

best thing I ever did for my brewing was to go to BIAB. simple, easy and I still make great beer. it's a hobby but it shouldn't be a chore....

You definitely need to scale back and unload some equipment. What do you have??

I haven't brewed since March. Spring and summer are just too busy with fun activities and work to sacrifice 4 hours to brewing. I'd rather be on my mountain bike than just about anything. I usually get about 30-40 gallons brewed between Columbus Day and Christmas, so I'll definitely be back!

Got rid of everything a few years ago.

I think I'll pick up a starter kit here in the next couple of months.
