So, the gf and I were in the liquor store, picked up a decent selection of a couple of craft beera, and the teller there asked if I brewed my own. I have recently started doing just that, and he gave me the address here. Awesome idea / resource / forum. Looking forward to being around. So far, I've done a couple of festa kits, a small batch of all grain summer wheat, and brewed up an extract old ale (going to age it with bourbon oak cubes for 6-12 months,) and will be brewing up a christmas beer shortly.

Too true. It'll take some of the impatience away from the 6 month aging process of the old ale as well. Being gone for 3 months of it will help  :cheers: I'm hoping to be able to set up a kegging system upon my return as well. Currently running a very basic kit as I just started brewing a couple months ago.
