Brewversary 39
« on: March 20, 2017, 06:04:59 PM »
Chilling in my bierkeller with my most recent BDS. 39 years of homebrew and counting.
Next up, bottle (or keg?) the Porter and the Tripel.
And then, what to brew next! Any suggestions?

That is quite the milestone, for sure.  I would suggest brewing something special to put up for your for your 40th celebration.

I always tell folks that I wasted a big chunk of my life before discovering homebrewing!  But you didn't do that!!

Awesome!  This November will be my 27 Brewversary, so I don't feel so old now.

The question is: If a man brews for half of his life, is the life half empty, or half full?

Sounds like a barleywine is in order.  8)

Can't imagine I'll get to 39 years of brewing as I did not start until I was 43, so congrats on that milestone, especially considering how big the next one is!
