Yesterday was my first time brewing with my new AG equipment. I made the cooler mash tun keggles and everything. It took a long time, but I enjoyed it. The bad part is I leave for Iraq before it will even be in its prime and this is the last homebrew i am making before I head over. Anyways you guys probably wont see me on here much for a year, but once I get back I will be brewing heavy. I do think my dad is going to take over my brewing in my abscence though. Thanks for all the advice.

Your sacrifice and service are inspiring. Take care and I lift one up to you. When you return, pm me and I'll ship you a sixer variety pack of brews I've made from now 'til then.
Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!
