So if I understand you correctly, by moving to the country, the black sheep in your neighborhood could quite possibly be a black sheep.

My new neighbour brews wine and the other just loves beer and cigars. I got my cooler mash tun for 2$ (xtreme 70) from the front neighbour. I think my forging hobby was MUCH more annoying... it's tough to deaden the ring from an anvil.

I can't say i'm the black sheep though, as the construction work being done on houses around here is much more disturbing...

Word man. All through the 90's into the new millenium,there was construction out the wazoo around here. forget keeping the car clean with all the clay lumps on the roads in the area. Glad that's over.

Wow some people are crazy! If my neighbors called the cops thinking I was making meth out in public in my driveway... I would for sure on the next batch, go out and get one of those full body suits and wear a respirator during the boil just to freak them out!

Sounds like my ex-wife and her new husband. Oh wait.... 7 cars, all in the yard, 2 run. Some people!

Make sure to display your yeast starter Erlenmeyer flask prominently. Is it bad that i actually felt shifty while buying mine?

I don't know why anyone would look down on you for brewing, I find that strange. All the people that I tell that I brew beer, think it's pretty awesome that I make my own beer. Hell, I have neighbors come over while I'm brewing or smoking bbq to see whats going on and offer any help.

Yes! And maybe place some dry ice in it too!

Brew in a trailer, with a Tyvek suit, and go full-on Walt White.

I've just received a request for a spiced holiday beer. Two, actually. My goodness, I'm going public. This is setting a dangerous precedent. Actually, what it means is that I can't brew fast enough. What it also means is that when I go pick up lox tomorrow (for a friend, as well as for my Friday breakfast), I'll grab another two pounds of rye. Two of Briess rye, one of Maris Otter, two different hops, black pepper, Irish moss, and Wyeast American Ale II. My first experimental batch. It's going to be awful; I just know it.

You might be surprised, though I've never put pepper in anything fermentable.
