I am on my way home after 11 1/2 months in Afghanistan! It has been a long (almost) year without beer, home brewing, and lots of other stuff. I placed an order last week with NB for enough ingredients to keep me busy for a few weeks at least.
To make up for the last year, I am planning a 4 or 5 week road trip around the USA checking out mountain biking and brew pubs around the country. I'll be asking for some ideas when the time gets closer. See you all soon.
