Welcome back! I took a ten year break. It doesn't take long before the addiction get back in your system. Enjoy!

9 years for me. Its like riding a bicycle The first couple of batches I made a few newbie mistakes, but the beer is better than ever.

My break was 11 years... I hit the ground running... 91 gallons since 4/22/09 (wow, I just added that up, where did that all go?). I did 3 extract batches and then went all grain. 3 batches after that I was on my single tier setup. Its defiantly a labor of love. Good Luck and have fun!

I once took a one month break. Thought I was going to pull my hair out.

Welcome back
