I just got into home brewing in July and have been lurking around this forum for about a month. I've been thinking about brewing for years but really started researching it this summer after I read palmers ebook I bought the print edition and a couple others. I had some questions about hardware and googled them and discovered this site just full of great info and advice. Every question I've had so far I've been able to find an answer (sometimes more than one answer) to just by searching this site. I've actually gotten kind of addicted to reading the posts. Its almost all I use my blackberry for anymore
. A little about myself, I'm thirty and getting married in a month. I'm a blue collar guy and work at the big chemical plant in midland and SWMBO is a nurse at the local hospital. I've done three batches so far and the first was a red ale kit that I was able to try this past weekend and it tasted great which only feeds my brewing bug. I'm so happy to find a good group of beer geeks to share this new hobby of mine with. Happy brewing to you all!
