Just like a new baby, eh? Or a new car, gotta keep checking to see if it's OK. Well I think you are hooked, my friend...BTW, you will really like that english ale. Just remember, it's not the same crap you buy outta the cooler at the store. Believe me, you will be surprised, at how fresh it tastes, and when you get around to doing grain batches, you'll never go back to commercial beers. I even got into the habit of trying at least something different at resturants when I go out with the wife.
Welcome to the forum, and a lifetime of better beer.
No, I like snow, it's the shoveling it I could do without....
