  • I've been married for over thirty years to a wonderful partner in life. Have two great kids, both in college: oldest (daughter) just finishing up and the youngest (son) just starting.

    I'm a Christian living in the Bible Belt who thinks it is not only okay to drink beer, but who thinks making it is fine as well. Unfortunately the state in which I live disagrees with the latter.

  • Can't really remember what spurred my original entry into home brewing; probably just something I ran across while wandering around the web. I brewed three batches of extract, all pretty good. Then I tried an all grain without the room or right equipment; went bad and I didn't brew again for several (five or so) years. Got back into it when I was down in Mobile and was picking up a wine kit; we (SWMBO & I) had been getting into wines and wanted to try and make a batch. While there, I also picked up a brew kit. This was in the fall of '07.
