New guy
« on: August 09, 2014, 01:57:55 PM »
I'm new to this forum and just wanted to say hello.  Originally from West Virginia but have lived in Georgia now for 30 years.  I still consider West Virginia my home.  I've been making my own beer for 2 years now mostly using pre-packaged kits which are "OK".  I've made two 5 gallon batches of brew from ingredients that I picked out and purchased from a place in Athens, GA that has now gone out of business.  I'm here to read and learn from experienced home brewers so that I might pick up some of the knowledge that this board has.  Knowledge wise, I'd say I'm pretty much starting from ground zero.  I'm happy to be a part of this forum and am looking forward to picking up some good tips.  Thanks.

Welcome to the forum! This is a great place to be, I know I've learned a lot and have met some great people, albeit virtually in most cases!

There is a tremendous amount of experience here and everyone is really helpful, conversational and fun!

Welcome from another relative "newbie." I think you'll find this is an awesome community of people willing to share and offer advice on all levels. Really nice people here!  :)

Welcome to the forums. Some of us are seasoned veterans of Homebrewing, but have good manners and are house trained.  ;D

My amners are better than average.  I'd give them a 35.

Welcome from one noob to another. Get ready to be addicted. Since I joined the forum a couple weeks ago my future aspirations have skyrocketed simply because of all experience on this board.
