It turns out we don't have the cash to do it anyway (got some bad news in the mail today) so next year.

Haven't been around much lately. I'm still really into beer, and I still like girls. Just haven't been myself lately. Been on a couple meds for about two weeks to try and get my head screwed back on straight. Been having some pretty heavy depression / anxiety. Nothing enviormental, all chemical (in my head). Got me on happy pills, so I'm hoping I'll be DTF any day now. As of right now, I have no drive, no motivation, no energy, pretty much nothing brings me joy. Basically, no will to go on. Just going through the motions. I'll be back to normal eventually. Dealt with it for a year or so back in my teens. It just decided to crop up again. I'm not posting this for a pity party. I just been out for a while, and didn't want you guys putting up "lost brewer" posters of me, like last time.
Did my first cold-smoked sausage (cajun andouille) last week. Was nervous about eating it despite the use of pink salt. So far, so good, no botulism poisoning! Will do again. Next up is a pepperoni.
What was your recipe/process detail for andouille...and pic.
Pepperoni is a favorite of mine.
I'm headed that way this year - I'll make sure to scratch it off the list.
Actually, the only two things on the list are Cantillon and Westvleteren. After that, I'll have to do some research on what's close and worth going to.
We made some mozzarella last night. First time making any cheese and it was pretty cool! What should we try next?
Are Keith and Drew the same person? Double life?
Brewers in Canada are now exactly equal to brewers in the UK, France, and everywhere else outside of the US. Prior to the change, brewers in Canada had an advantage over their other international entrants.
How many AHA members are there from those other countries compared to Canada and participate in AHA activities ?
Aside: At the GBBF there's a special floor for people with kids, and you can go with a big group of parents and kids and go on beer runs in groups. Weird that the GABF doesn't have the same thing.Don't they have big glasses at the GBBF? At the GABF the tasting glass is small and sometimes you need to get in line right away to get your next beer before you even start the first. Although I tend to avoid those lines
I like you're idea of babysitter pooling, but we won't be there.
