I've been gone from HBT for a long time. I originally came here to learn a little about making beer and to find out if I could be successful at it. I did my reading, research and asked questions and gave it a try.
My very first batch was a huge success. My family liked it and my friends took some to a birthday party where it was very well received. I'm quite proud of that. I came up with the recipe I used myself. I'm amazed it was any good at all to be honest. It was nothing special, just a simple Amber Ale using Saaz and Hallertau Mittelfruh with German Carahell and Light Munich.
I haven't had any alcohol for about a year now and I find myself wondering...can I understand this process enough to do this again? Hmm....
When I think about it, it's a shame to waste the knowledge I gained.
See you all around...I think.
