The cost feature for ingredients is already in beersmith.  You could then add your other items to the miscellaneous ingredients. (Time,  equipment,  fuel,  water, etc. )

Saw Costner out fishing a few years ago off Santa Barbara.   He's got a very nice catamaran

I've lived my whole life in California.  Grew up in the San Fernando Valley in the North end of LA. College and a few years after in San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay.  Short stints in Napa and Chico.  Currently live in Orange County.  With the exception of Chico I've never lived farther than 50 miles from the Pacific Ocean. 

That trip would be a lot of driving but there are stops along the way and the Big Sur Coast drive on PCH is incredible

Come to the West Coast.  Go to a Dodgers game.  Seeing just California in a week will be difficult.  How much driving are you planning on doing? Diners, drive in and dives has a list of all the shows they've done.  Flying to lax, two nights in San Diego.  Then up the coast to Santa Barbara,  San Luis Obispo,  or Paso Robles.  Then through Big Sur to San Francisco. One night in SF. One night in Santa Rosa or Healdsburg,  then a solid drive back to Los Angeles,  Dodgers game and fly home.

Do the x-tra tuff boots have good arch support?  They look nice, but I wonder about all day on a cement floor????
With a nice pair of insoles yes.

The non us ones are still good.  Just don't last as long.

The Pub / Re: the quality of American sours
« on: January 10, 2015, 11:32:56 AM »
I have tried quite a few American and Belgian sours. As well as Brett beers. I keep trying to figure out what the appeal is. I think as a former winery worker, I have a very strong aversion to Brett and sour beers just seem weird to me.

The Pub / Re: What's your favorite thing about being a Homebrewer?

I would say being able to combine cooking, science and drinking into one great hobby that goes well with the fish I catch.
