Marshall - I have no problem with anyone who can seek to earn a living doing what they enjoy - indeed, that might be the ideal most people strive for in life.  I enjoy some, and maybe most of what I do for a living, but I really enjoy homebrewing and all that goes with it. 

In short - Don't let anyone deter you in your pursuits.  I don't think there is any diminishment of value in what you guys publish/say/do, just because you happen to cover a portion of your costs or even make a profit while doing your homebrewing and providing information to others.  I find great value in your commentary.  Please keep it up.

But, man, that is a long work day you have....

Daughter dating soon? This makes me happy I never had kids... not sure how I would handle that. I used to pastor a youth group of 15, 15 year old's - worlds best and most frightening prophylactic. Now seeing my 16 year old nephew once a year is more than enough! Good luck dude.

All good, man. She's 14, so it'll be too soon regardless, right ?.  It'll be fine.....until it isn't.  ;)

Thanks, I've no plans to stop anytime soon!

I only work 4 days a week, the extra day off is more than worth the extra 2 hours.

I used to do 3-4 13's on a rotating schedule, but I was on my feet the whole time with no breaks. As much as I miss the extra weekdays off, I'm perfectly happy with the 7-3:30 gig I have now.

I do have it in the back of my mind to try and make a Fuggle beer that surprises Denny, but he might revolt worse than he did with the Chowdah or White Stout recipes.

I've actually hd a couple Fuggle beers I really like.  But it was with Fuggles grown at a hop farm down the road from me, not English Fuggles.  Tasted coletely different.  That has me thinking about terrior in relation to hops.

Could also be climate. I've grown Cascade for the last 3 years in my back garden in the UK and they've been consistently flavourless.

Yep, although I consider that to be part of terrior.

Actual Fuggles gown here.  They almost had Cascade like qualities to them.

Wow, that would be the Fuggles I'd like then. I guess the terroir partly explains why hop varieties can vary so much from year to year, vendor to vendor.

I love domestic Fuggles, they are different imo than UK Fuggles, which I also really enjoy.

Or from farm to farm, and field to field on the same farm. Learned that at Hop School.
