So I am here, sitting in the brewery, with music turned up loud (YES -- Fragile 1972) drinking Centennial IPA (my 6th) savoring every sip, knowing my that my wife is not pleased and my 19 year old granddaughter,home on spring break, is not happy ( music too loud... me drinking), and yet I cannot help from reveling in the fact that I just racked to secondary the best lager I have yet to make. I believe that is worth a drunken rambling or mindless mumbling.
This lager ... a pilsner...(my first pilsner {long distance runaround just starting) is glorious... sweet with golden corn flakes, a slight noble hop kick and crisp clean finish and I have not yet lagered this brew. She shall be a good brew.
As I sit here I realize that I have worked in the information technology field longer than all of my employees have been alive. That my fellow brewers is an unbelievable scary thought. So after nearly 30 years of computer science I look back and can easily say there are two things in my life that have made a difference (heart of the sun rise starting) learning to brew and finding Home Brew Talk.... I raise a glass to you my fellow brewers and say THANK YOU!

I'm working on 19 in IT. Only good thing is I have managed to stay a developer and not get into management. I like my beer too

My first computer was a Apple II+ with 64K of RAM and TWO 360K floppies. Now I support over 400 servers and 64 TB of disk in a QA environment. Things have changed.
