Oh, I've been collecting carboys, so now it's just a matter of finding the time. A 4-month-old in the house gets in the way, however. Odd that I've chosen now to really get going... or perhaps not. I can't leave the house anyway!
Mead is nice. A little honey, a little water, some yeast, and then walk away for a year or two (with a racking, of course). If I can't get to it, all the better.
Beer, however, needs more attention, which is not a complaint.
