    Trade a baby for brewing?

    I never thought I’d want/ have kids until I did. And it’s been great, although there are definitely stressful and crazy times. But you adapt and figure it out. That being said, adding a third is going to push me over the top. I gotta figure we’ll make this work too. We’ll have to. I told my mom...

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    I’m not ready to tell family and friends. Oh, the questions and comments they’ll have.

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    I thought of that, but then I’d need bigger equipment. The cool think is that my oldest are now old enough to play outside while I do it without needing to be watched.

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    I got the whole kegerator hooked up (gas and liquid lines) last night. Kegged my Memorial Day IPA today and hooked it up. I wasn’t pleased with the flavor of the IPA, but hopefully carbonation, keg hops and being cold will change that. I still have room for one more keg, but I’ll probably just...

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    I found some time to work on my kegerator today. Added two taps, just need gas and liquid lines and I’m good to go. I have a half keg of a tangelo IPA I’ve have had on tap in my old kegerator and my ‘Memorial Day IPA’ I made two weeks ago can be kegged at any time. As soon as it’s complete, I’ll...

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    10 weeks yesterday, the size of a cumquat, I’m told. I received a lecture from my wife about drinking too much. I will say it’s been a bit more than usual, but nothing crazy. About 5 beers a day last weekend. I usually keep it pretty dry during the work week. What can I say? Beer makes my...

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    Funny, I love Scrubs and we’re currently rewatching it (again) and actually just saw the episode you’re talking about a few days ago. I actually chuckled about that part, as Turk is told it’s going to happen anyway, so basically get something out of it. However, that was definitely not my...

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    If only. I have parlayed this into a new kegerator, which I am soon to be adding a couple of taps to, and I’m planning to somewhat convert some garage space into a bar type area. But we’ll see how far that goes- I’m not very good at building things, nor do I have that necessary garage space...

    Let’s just say... there were times that I was a hostage. I was just comfortable with believing it wasn’t happening when...

    Well, it’s happened.

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    I get it. I feel so stressed all the time with the two kids I got as it is. And no extra time for myself. Can't imagine having three kids and being able to brew more than a few times a year. I will say, things should get easier for you once your kids are able to play together. A ways off, but...

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    Update: earned 3rd place in a local home brew contest today with my rye IPA! Pretty stoked about that. Set to brew a pale ale next weekend. Still no sign of a baby (knock on wood) but had to have relations the last few days because "it was time" so we'll see what happens.

    Age and daily beer consumption.....

    37 and I usually have 1-3 a night on weekends, maybe 1-2 total the rest of the week. Trying to be a good example for my kids.

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    Great. So today would have been a perfect day for brewing, but I somehow screwed up and didn't take advantage. And to make matters worse, I'll probably end up having sex tonight anyway. EDIT: Yep, I knew that was going to happen.

    Trade a baby for brewing?

    Ah yes, I've been meaning to update everyone on my... activities. The relations have increased, that's for sure. Still no sign of another kid, which is a good thing, in my opinion. I'm wondering if our ages are playing into it a little; maybe I'm running out of seeds. As for the brewing, I...

    I am going to go 31 days without beer...

    I remember you doing this last year. I won't be joining you, but good job by you, you're a better man than I. Good luck!
