Name's Harold, live in central Maine and have been brewing since Jan 2002.
Was an extract/steeping grains brewer for the first six years and started doing all grain a year ago.
Other hobbies include hunting, fishing, x-country skiing, motorcycles and photography.
I got into homebrewing when my youngest daughter bought a TrueBrew homebrewing kit for me for Christmas. I remember tearing the paper off the box and thinking to myself "What the hell am I going to do with this?" since homebrewing had never crossed my mind.
Best thing that happened to my brewing is when my wife told me to get out of the kitchen and gave me permission to set up a brewing area in the cellar!
I've been married for 40 years, have two daughters who are both out of the house and off my payroll.
I've been working in the social services field for 39 years, in administration for the past 33 years. Expect to retire in about 4 years!
I've put membership in the Association on my Christmas list but if it doesn't show up in my stocking, I'll do it myself.
I've been on the B3 board for about 5 years as Maineac.
