Ready to commit again and this year go with the Gingerbread Ale. Need to go back and see who the deadbeat was from last year and make sure he's blackballed. Yes, im still chapped about that.

Yep, me too. That's part of the reason I'm not in for this year.

I remember getting bitter and rhoadsrage making a comment about letting go and have fun with rest of the group and he's right. I had a great time with 10 other brewers and, for me, wouldn't want to miss out. I still have 1 of each brewer remaining and looking forward to cracking that open this year along this years equivalent. I can't let one bad apple spoil it.

Sign me up! I'm a novice brewer but my batches have been turning out well. I followed the thread last year and really wanted to taste everyone's contributions. I'll do the honey ginger IPA as long as you don't mind extract+steeped grain. Could you post the recipe?

The Fruitcake Old Ale is delicious. I highly recommend you brew it ASAP, it just keeps tasting better and better the older it gets. I have some that is about 11 months old and it is awesome! Also be prepared, this was by far the most expensive recipe I have ever made, but it was well worth.

I will need to sit out this year. Had a blast last year but I need to save my pennies. Have fun everyone!

I tried to get my homebrew club to do this and not have to deal with the shipping, but there were no takers. Have fun!
