I think my first extract batch was ‘92 or so. I ordered a starter kit from Williams when I was stationed in Savannah which was before I was assigned to Italy in ‘93-‘96. I recall taking home brew in a rinsed out half gal milk jug to watch the Sand-gnats play baseball. They allowed us to bring in our ‘ice tea’ to sit and watch from the wooden bleachers. After the Italy, Clarksville TN, DC, and Clarksville (again) assignments, subsequent retirement and move to Huntsville, I began brewing again in ‘13 when AL made home brew legal.
It’s been fun watching Yellowhammer grow as well as the other breweries in the area. Had some good times under that Pecan tree in the Biergarten behind the brewery. Weird turn of events lately but glad to see it’s working out.
