    How long an Extract Brewer?

    Almost 8 years into extract brewing & planning on staying with extracts. Extracts are fast, fun & you can shoot for what you like with a little change here and there. I enjoy it!:rock:

    So I did it

    3 plus years it took me !!

    Don't get me wrong, all my beers I have brewed have been at least OK, some pretty good, some real good. I am my own worst critic as I would not share till I was satisfied that I had brewed a beer I could not find fault with and this one was it. I document everything I brew so I can duplicate it...
