so, i brewed my first batch this past weekend and it went pretty well (i think). i also created a blog to document the process (as well as other brewing / beer related stuff):

BrewingExperiment.com

no 'major' issues, though i did have a few comedic moments.
there is progress as the fermenter is fermenting, wahoo! i'll probably move it to the secondary next weekend and bottle a week or so after that.

wish me luck on the rest of the adventure.

Good luck. There seem to be a pretty good fly fishing community building up here

Heh, yeah. The first time I was at a party and someone came up to me and asked if I wanted to play cornhole, there was almost a fight.

I ended up thinking the game was a lot of fun though. Kinda like horseshoes, it gets more fun the more everyone's had to drink.

Edited: What a stupid thing to say. Everything gets more fun the more everyone's had to drink.

It's intentionally named the same thing as "something else".

It used to be called "bean bag", but some genius marketer changed the name to corn hole because the double-entendre catches people's attention.

Yeah, I've always heard it called "Bags" but I have a friend from Ohio who calls it Cornhole. We were all very confused when he first said that.

that's pretty cool. i'm hoping this will be done by the time i go to the beach on a fishing trip.

and cornhole is bags, bag toss, tailgate toss, etc... it's a pretty fun game, especially when you have a few beers.
