Default Home from Afghanistan

Well I made it home from Afghanistan.

Day one back at home included a trip to my LHBS to pick up the supplies that I ordered before I even left Kabul. Just finished my pitching my first starter about 5 hours ago and I already see activity. Can't wait until Sunday when I will brew my very first homebrew!

Thanks for all of the advice, suggestions, and support over the last couple months as I began to read and learn about my new hobby. I'll capture some pics of brew day to share. Wish me luck!

JB

Good luck with the brew, man. Thanks for all you do. My buddy's son is due home in about six weeks and we are planning a welcome home brew session when he arrives.
