Default hello from iraq

yeah i'm deployed and actually haven't brewed my own yet.but i have helped one of my grandpa brew some wine and a friend brew some cider before.but i have been lurking here for a few months now.i lived in the barracks and they have a rule against having too much alcohol and no where to cook.so that kinda gets in the way of brewing alittle.but i will have my own place when i get back so i will be in full swingoh i'm stationed at fort hood

There are a great many Brew supply stores in Texas,

If you are at Fort Hood, I am sure you know of the "back road" to Austin!
So where in Iraq are you?

Welcome to the Forums! I'm sure you have been getting plenty of ideas of what you do when you come back stateside. I have a good friend that is in Afghanistan right now and a roommate in Iraq. they left about the same time so when they left we brewed a barley wine. Once they return that is getting opened and we will have a grand old time.

My uncle is a LTC at Ft. Hood I hope to stop by and visit sometime in the next year (later). I hope you make it back safe and if I come down we might have to swap some brew

Hello from Al Amarah, Iraq. Welcome to HBT.

ARMY SGT out of Fort Sill. Yeah, I never tried to brew on post, I allways had a place out the gates.
How long till you can do your first brew? I cant wait till I can start filling my buckets and carboys again. There is a ton of stuff to read on the net, but I bought a few homebrewing books to read while deployed as well.

Homebrewing is like sex, even if you can't do it, it's fun to talk about it.

Hope your deployment ends soon and safely. You too MP.
