Just returned a month ago from Sperwhan Ghar in South Kandahar. Not a nice place. I had planned exactly what my first brew would be and I used the California Common recipe out of one of the BYO mags that was sent to me while I was over there. I ordered the supplies from the computers when I was in KAF and I brewed my first weekend I was home. I just bottled it about a week ago and it looks great. Can't wait to get some down range. Also have a Maplfein or whatever it's called on the go with another buddy from my section I got into homebrewing. I got the recipe off the site but so far it looks great.

I know this is an old thread but I think the initial idea is great and extremely giving to those who serve. So to all those volunteers for this idea, thanks for supporting those who serve.

I am new to WHMBP so I wasn't aware about the effort to have homebrew for returning Solders. My son is currently home on R&R and will be returning to Iraq in a few days. I made my first batch of homebrew in 20 years and, happily, it was ready to drink when he got here. When his current deployment ends a new batch of blueberry mead should be ready to drink. Its my first try at a melomel so I hope it turns out OK.

Welcome back skin chops - I was fortunate enough to get back last September. But you got back in time for a beautiful CA summer! Enjoy it!

I just got back last September and wish I homebrewed before I left. This is just one more reason why this site is awesome. Thanks to all who volunteer there time (and beer) to those who serve.

Is this thread still active? Are we still supporting our troops coming home from deployment?

Was just curious because I sent an email to whmbp@homebrewtalk.com and it was returned to my email. I am currently deployed in Kandahar Afghanistan and will be returning in mid January. I will post the email sent if we are still actively engaged in this program.

Thanks, please let me know.

Brian

I'm not sure it is but let's bump it in case. Good luck and stay safe.
