Finally, there is an AHA forum I know how to use. I never could figure out or really take the time and patience to participate in the old email message board.

Anyway, a bit about me. I am Steve and I live in South Louisiana right outside Baton Rouge toward New Orleans. My regular job is as a Paramedic with the City of Baton Rouge. I have been a  medic for right at 30 years. I am married with 3 kids still at home.

Brewing wise I brew all grain and started out brewing that way. I bought a keggerator from a dude on Craigslist and he threw in all of his beer equipment hence how I got into brewing beer all grain. I had brewed one extract batch with a buddy prior. I have worked my way from the coolers to a commercial sculpture system.

I actually started out as a winemaker and still make wine. I am a moderator for a large winemaking forum and an Administrator for another. I am a member of a few beer forums but this is the forum I have been waiting for. I don't know how many times I wrote AHA requesting it. If the info here is as good as the email list, it is gonna be a leader. I am a forum freak and look forward to learning, sharing, and helping this forum grow.

Hey Steve,  I look forward to sharing ideas with you as well!!

Side note:  I was a Purple Panther in 1969.  Is Woodlawn still going strong?  My Dad took a sabbatical & worked on his PHD@ LSU then...

Yup, Woodlawn is still going strong. They built a new campus about 4 years ago or so south on Jefferson Highway just north of Antioch. There is a new middle school where the high school was. My step son goes to Woodlawn High and my step daughter goes to the Middle School. My wife is a Woodlawn graduate as well. She graduated in 81.
I cook and I brew down on the bayou

Joining up.

Some differences I see here... The Weaze has only 8 posts, and the Major can now ban you for pitching warm.

.  It's cool to be on a board run by brewers rather than vendors.  I especially appreciate the effort to have an off topic section that isn't packed full of political BS.  This is shaping up to be one hell of a gathering of brewers and I'm really looking forward to it
