I have a hobby that involves the next step after the fermentation process, but we're not allowed to talk about on this forum.  I find this pretty amusing because homebrewing used to be illegal too, until homebrewers worked hard to have homebrewing made legal. 

This other hobby suffers from erroneous myths that are repeated by many out of ignorance of the subject.  The hobby is involved in a new craft renaissance on the commercial level.  Take my word for it.  Doing it a home will become as common as homebrewing someday, once again.  We just have to overcome all of the BS myths that surround it.

Don't tell anyone, but this hobby is actually legal in Missouri. Federally no, but on the state level, yes.

I didn't know that.
 
I was at a friends house who's opening a craft distillery when he was 'planning' recipes. While seeing the process, I felt like 'This is it? This is illegal?' It was like I'd just found out soap was considered dangerous.

My collection of vintage instruments.  Of course they weren't vintage when I bought them. :o  I still like to write and record, but I must admit it's hard to find the time.  I do still play enough to keep my chops though.  The flute and violin in the cases are my daughter's, although I do kick her ass on violin.

BTW nice trebuchet Jimmy.

One of the reasons I'm cancelling The Discovery Channel.  That crap is a joke and I'm done paying for it.

Streaming is the way to go.  Netflix, Amazon, Hulu.  Everything you want to watch much cheaper.

Tickle is an idiot.  That show is awful.  Imagine how you would feel if homebrewing were portrayed that way.

I have a boat, a bicycle, and I'm a runner.

My real hobby is tutoring my 17 year old daughter in the scary subject of math.  This year it's trigonometry.  My engineering class work hath prepared me well.

I love to cook, love dogs, do a bit of woodworking, read and have been doing CrossFit for about 5-6 years now.

Just tell her you are doing it to make your beer fit in smaller bottles...

Ha Ha!  all this time I thought you all were talking about smoking pot as the activity that can't be mentioned!

It can in some states. Do a forum search for "dank" :)

With all the rain we have been fortunate to have this summer, my other hobby is cutting grass.

Otherwise, I fish and have started tying a few flies.
