OK, I've been lurking around here long enough and decided it's time I've made my presence known. I've been brewing extract since around 1990 or so. Had a life changing experience that I don't want to go into here around 1997, and lost the hobby for several years. I came back last year with a vengence for all grain. I've done six batches so far with increasing success. I just want to thank everyone here for for their input, I have pulled a wealth of information from this forum, and I want all the contributors to know it is very much appreciated. I write this as I am sipping a Fat Squirrell Clone from Yooper, and I have a couple of Bier Muncher's recipes on deck. Thanks, and by the way, this is the most adult and civil forum I have found so far. Really, Thanks.
