Default Hello from Oregon!

Hi everyone! I got the link to this site from a friend of mine in Iowa, I'm a total NEWBIE to the hobby and just bought my first kit and brewed a batch of porter for my very first brew.

So at any rate a little about me, I'm 55 yrs old/M/ and married to a fantastic lady whom I call SWMBO (she who must be obeyed lol.
I am lookking forward to being a member here and learning from all of you folks. The reason I say that is because it's a steep learning curve for me as of yet.
So folks, please bear with me if I should come up with questions that have been answered before.

This is my very first post here and just wanted to say hello to everyone and to thanks the owners of the website for making it available and that I do look forward to perusing all the various forums!

Cheers
Mongo

Welcome to another Orygonian and hope you enjoy your new obsession as much as the rest of us.

Which part of Oregon are you calling home, there could be lots of help in your area.

Aha - for some reason I thought Portland area when I read your original post(even thought you didn't type it!). I know there is one guy in Ashland that's on the forum, maybe you can hook up with him for a demo if you wanted to.

Hi Joker I'm enjoying it so far but am really bummed about my capper breaking yesterday on my first bottling attempt.

Cheers
Mongo

Now that's cool! Ashland is about 25=30 miles south of me.

Thanks!

OMG! Did no one else catch this?!?! This fine gentleman (while shaking his hand excitedly) came here already knowing the term "SWMBO"!
Come in sir, have a seat.... can I offer you a beer? WELCOME TO HBT!

After you have been here a while, you will understand my seemingly idiotic post.... hint - search for SWMBO on the site.
