    I love having "stuff" around!

    I have tons of tools related to the electrical trade, since that is my livelihood. Other than that, though, I don't have a "lot" of stuff. But I do have as much as the next guy, I suppose.

    Oldest thread, can you find it?

    Without doing an actual search, I am betting it is a "is my beer ruined" thread. Either that or a " I have ten days to get from burner to bottle cause I said I would brew for a wedding, what do you recommend" thread. Sorry for the cynicism, but in keeping with the forum in which this thread...

    Are you a perfector or an explorer?

    I have my house brews that I will repeat. I also try something a little different from time to time. But for the most part, my experimentation days ended years ago.

    Camping beer?

    Seriously, your beer deserves to be given more than 3 weeks to be at its best. I am not being glib or condescending or trying to be a smart-ass here. I think you should bite the bullet and take commercial beer, and take your homebrew on the next trip so it has time to be what it should be.
