Default Hi from Kansas

Been brewing on and off since '95. Was on a 6 year hiatus and pulled my equipment out of storage boxes this summer (cleaning the basement and garage!).
Partial mash for many years and slowly switching to all grain.

I found this group when looking for recipes.

1 ABA bottled. 1 honey wheat kegged. 1 pumpkin ale in secondary. Abbey, Octoberfest and ESB planned.

Possibly. I've never seen the movie. I slipped in a puddle (beer, wouldn't you know) and went down on my rear. Guys in the group started saying piper down, piper down! Seemed like an easy handle to remember.

Probably helps to round out the story by saying that I play the bagpipes and was playing with a pipe band on a St. Patrick's Day over in Topeka. I don't recall if it was '99 or '00. Free beer when you play gigs in bars on St. Paddy's day.

Not sure. Would be interesting to find out. Booze and piping seem to go hand in hand sometimes!
