You know, I can't help but feel cry baby-ish about this topic, but where I live, I am the only homebrewer I know and, in my excitement to finally meet someone else and have conversation, I was really taken aback by the reception I received. I take my process very seriously and have an "all grain fund" building slowly. Because that has been my goal from the start. I must have read How to Brew five times before I bought a single thing. I really appreciate the responses I got from you guys because it was pretty discouraging. Normally, I'd stand up and put jokers like that in their place, but it did actually make me wonder how extract brewers are viewed among the masses. What a great community this is! Thanks again.
