That's dedication, and considering at least one of my tattoos, I can understand and appreciate that level of fandom

Trust us, they are there. In the market for a new high end sports car, just click on the link in between posts or at the top and bottom of each and every page. Having access on my phone has been nice, but the online version is easier to use and navigate. i agree that it is a small price to pay, but I also only use tapatalk for the AHA forum. Think I'll just be spending more time on the forum online and really only use the app for posting pics. There was no warning either that I saw that this ad posting was coming, so it was a huge and disappointing realization to see all the ads, luckily I only clicked on one and immediately realized that it was just an ad. They look just like any other post, especially if you are just looking at unread posts. There are some odd ball topics and posts on this forum, and some of the ads blend in well despite their lack of cohesion with our common hobby. Disappointed Tapatalk user (former that is)

Well done! Have fun with it, if you have the space and time, start the second kit soon after the first. This will help alleviate the desperate desire to drink it all before more is ready. Come back here often for inspiration, information, and education and you will be brewing great beer

Pete, is it any better that I'm actually no longer an Ohioan, I live in Indiana, about 5 minutes from Ohio though,

Right now I am so happy that the PENS traded James Neal in return for Patrik Hornquist. Horny scored the CUP winning goal tonight as the Pittsburgh Penguins became​ the first team in 19 years to defend their Stanley Cup. Yes, the CUP goes to spend the summer with the Penguins for the second summer in a row. Hell Yeah PENS! On a side note, the playoffs are over and the cheesy 70's playoff stache is gone.
Some drinks were enjoyed along the way including some great local cans and a bottle of Balvenie Caribbean Cask Scotch. Another note, Sidney Crosby wins the Conn Smythe trophy, as the NHL playoff MVP, for the third time

Haven't met him, but I agree with the Wesley/Will differences

Ward labs is frequently suggested. Fairly cheap and simple. You don't necessarily need their Brewers test, I think the one suggested is test 6

Also need to add: Tapatalk is definitely now add bombing me/all users. It's been a free service and they now want you to pay for it. There is an ad at the bottom of every page in each thread for me as well as ads on my list of unread threads, listed as "suggested' most seem to have nothing to do with brewing and I'm not sure what the arrangement is supposed to be between AHA and Tapatalk. It's a bit annoying, but easy enough to skip over. Have not played close enough of attention to notice anything inappropriate, but I'm sure there are some. Just my experience

Been out of the loop and out of town on vacation, but here's my $0.02: when I came here, I had already started all grain. I thought that was the mountain top. In my 3+ years on this forum, I have mainly asked questions, and responded when I thought I could add to the conversation. I'm not a creative person by nature, or an engineer, but I love brewing and I love the education this forum has given me. I'm usually here daily, and follow up with almost any new posts. I don't brew nearly as often as I would like, or have stock on hand for. But every brew day is special to me. Thanks to the great members here, I recently received a second place for a doppelbock, thanks Denny, and honorable mention for a dry stout, thanks Martin. The point of this goes back to me not being overly creative; in almost 4 years of brewing, I really have not formulated an original recipe. I have tweaked what I learned here to produce some great brews. Without this forum, I'd still be over paying for kits from the LHBS. I may be hard to find during hockey season (read as October through June) but I feel great when I learn something new here and even more so when I can pass on the knowledge I have gained here. I'm in for the Long haul, but also have gotten tired of the bickering, but have found a way to look/pick through it when I feel there is a benefit. Glad to know you'll still be around Phil, and I'm not here to get you to re-enroll, you have to do what fits in with your needs. Good brewing to you and all here. And thanks to all who have helped me on my adventure

Edit to fix my typos, I really need to follow the advice about "read before posting" damn fat fingers

C'mon PENS, we just need one more like the last one. The wife wants the stache gone, let's do this! Here's to shaving Monday morning

Uh, that game sucked. How often has a goal been scored from Toronto when not seen live? I know it's allowed, but I've never seen it. Surely, the SCF is not the place to try it out in the playoffs
