You may not know this but I spent 23 years in the USAF. I'm originally from Syracuse, NY and have lived in Conn, Va, Md, NC, AZ, Colo, Calif, Guam, Germany and of course Nebraska. Why are we here? To brew beer buddy!!! Thanks Yooper for all your time and sharing your knowledge with us!

I'm sorry Yooper, I goofed & sidetracked your thread.

I got turned onto brewing while waiting for my car to get fixed. There was a Homebrew shop across the street & I went in to kill some time.

After $2000 and some time here on HBT........................... I can brew beer BETTER than 98% of the commercial stuff out there. I joined a beer club to get a better taste experience, and I am a better brewer than 90% of them.

Following recipes here I brew better tastin' beer than shop owners that have won awards.

They come to ME with the questions. I know nuthin'. It's YOU and HBT!

I love your Avatar!

I'll throw my 2 cents in.

I actually never planned to get into brewing. I suggested a started kit to my parents for an xmas gift to my brother. Low and behold they got me one as well. My first batch was a disaster and the second wasnt much better. I just kept brewing once or twice a month and the rest is history. HBT is the reason I'm a better brewer.

I Road bike as well as ride a motorcycle when weather permits.
I do some web development and writing software.
I've also spent an embarrassing amount of my life watching movies.
Oh and I sell cars for a living, which is ok.

I don't like wearing pants at home and typically brew barefoot.


Am I doing this correctly?

You may not know this about me, but I didn't like beer. Never drank beer, unless I had to order one at a bar with friends.
Then a friend talked about brewing, and I looked it up here. While I was surfing HBT, my boss came by and saw. Instead of reprimanding me, he asked if I brewed, and I said I was thinking about it. So he loaned me all his equipment. Fast forward 2 years, I returned all his stuff, I have an electric brewery, and I drink beer now, because it's actually good to drink. The beer I make, I love to drink!

And because of Yooper, I make soap. Still don't drink soap, though.

Outside of brewing, I'm pretty uninteresting really.

Well,I'm a German Slovak Apache that's half city,half country. The two are at odds with eachother over some things. I have a bad back & hips,so hunting & fishing are limited. All due to working too hard as an autoworker. Hot rodding cars started getting expensive,& it took too long for the wines I used to make to mature. 1 year was too long to wait to sample my handiwork. Being broke most of the time with a big house & family,retirement isn't what I intended. But partial mash brewing did cut off about 12 bucks a batch,so that's something.

I am a retired Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod musician and teacher. I served as music director at four LC-MS congregations in Menomonee Falls, WI; Oconomowoc, WI; Dallas, TX and Marengo, IL. The church where I currently play...and where my membership is...has an associate pastor who is a fellow brewer! And I absolutely LOVE Johann Sebastian Bach's music...almost as much as a good beer!

Now, here's another related question: who is the oldest member on this website? I will turn 67 this October. Anyone older???
