I NEED to brew, but I am fzucking broke. I found out that my federal tax break check will be coming in paper check form because I used HR Block and paid for it out of my refund. I am married with two kids so the check is going to be sweet but I sure could fzucking use it right fzucking now. I have three brews in mind for this month and the only hold up is the funds.

Hobby on hold..... goddamnit

when this happens to me I explore the further and cheaper reaches of this hobby, cheese making, vinegar, sour dough bread, moonshine, fermenting things that shouldnt be fermented like whey. you can also call in a few favors from friends who have consumed more than their fair share of your homebrews, any good friend will contribute to the beer fund when asked nicely.

Not to sound like a downer, but WHY on earth did you OVERPAY your taxes? You could have taken that same money and made SOME interest on it...

Basically, what you've done is overpay your taxes and gave the Gov't an INTEREST-FREE loan with your money...

Overpayment is the ONLY reason anyone would get a refund.

I PROUDLY have written a check every year for the past 20 or so. Sometimes (very rarely) I get a small, albeit very small (under $100), check from them.

The next batches I am doing will be PM so I am just a little excited and broke. So, this is the end of my oh-poor-pity-me rant.
