I am not sure my problem (although I am sure many of you have opinions!) but I have been really amazed lately with my lack of enthusiasm around brewing and such. I need a shot in the arm or something! I am interested in the whole world of sour beers and barrel aging. Maybe that will help. It has been hotter then I care to recount and the brews are not real happy. Maybe it is time to dig a beer cellar. I don't know.

Suggestions will be appreciated.

It's obvious that brewing has nothing more to offer you. Just give up and send me all your stuff! I'll even come by and pick it up.

...of course, you'll have to show me how to work most of it

You could brew blindfolded?

Oh wait, you probably already can.

You could always shoot for good tasting fruit beer?

Sounds like the summer doldrums!! Take the rest of the summer off, enjoy those homebrews and pick it up in the fall when it cools down. Just like the old days of brewing before refrigeration.

I have gone through this a few times. Right now I am back on my upswing and am brewing like crazy. Take some time off and submerge yourself in some other interests. Brewing will come back and even more interesting than ever!!
