Well, I've crossed over from PM to AG. Being that I'm stuck in Afghanistan for another 2.5 months, the wife and kiddos ordered me a MLT from Midwest for father's day. I didn't have the heart to tell them that I could have built one for cheaper, since the gesture was heart felt. It came in today and the better half told me to go ahead and order my brew pot, so now I got a 12 gallon pot on the way as well! So in the last 3.5 months, I've gotten a kegerator, MLT and brew pot!!! It's a good thing the better half loves my beer, or else I'd be in some serious trouble!

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it!!! Since I'm not getting back until mid Sept. time frame, I'm going straight for a pumpkin ale. I did the extract version from AHS last year that was a huge hit, even though it wasn't finished until November. After that.....I'm thinking the Vanilla Bourbon Porter that everyone has been raving about
