Catfish: if that doesn't work for you, check out a program suite call Open Office; it's an open source version of Office available for free and works nearly as well as the real thing. I have it running on Windows and Linux, so it should be available for Mac .

Want to brew and split 20?

Let find a time and do it.

-off topic- You entering and/or judging for the State Fair? I will enter some brews and try to clear the deck for judging as well. Sundays are a bit tricky however.

I have pretty much been brewing IPA's and IIPA's and I am all IPA'ed out! So I just brewed a 5 gallon batch of a dark mexican lager styled after Negro Modelo. It has another 10 days to go before I can drink it and my curiosity is killing me, Lagers take a long time compared to IPA's! I hope it's going to be good.

I too was recently introduced to sour beers at a food and beer pairing hosted by Vinny from RR. It was awesome! I would love to try and brew a sour, but I will need to do some research and learn more about it. The thing I love about brewing is, it will never get old or boring if you don't let it. Challenge yourself with a new style or a difficult style, like something that you have tried in a bottle but didn't like. Learn the style and brew it and then do some side by side tastings with the store bought and your homebrew with a bunch of your friends.

I won't give you the advice I just got about my golf game, "Take 2 weeks off and then quit!"

Maybe the answer to my funk is to go funky!

On a side note, I love Weizens, but I had always been a little put off by the description of a Berliner Weissbier as sour. But when Dogfish Head came out with one this year (Festina Peche), I knew I had to try it. And I liked it a lot.
