Hey guys, heard over on LOB you were asking.  Thanks for showing the concern.  I haven't got COVID yet, and until I go down, I'm brewing more enthustically and successfully than ever.  Hope everyone here is staying safe and healthy, too.

Great to see you back here, Rob!

And forums in general are so much less active these days than say 5-10 years ago.

It really does seem that way.  I wonder why.

There are now social media pages for just about every facet of Homebrewing. Those get attention.

Those (FB, etc) seem so unorganized. The forum model is way more functional IMHO.

I agree, but those others get a lot of traffic.

Yeah Hoosier has been gone for a long time now. I was disappointed when he left. He was always very helpful to me. Robert is the only one I can recall seeing withing the past few months.


Hey Guys,

 Been awhile. Still alive and brewing.  As mentioned by Bama, I've been spending forum time on lowoxygenbrewing.com .
 After things got pretty divided over the topic (and since I learned that I preferred to brew in this fashion) it seemed a no-brainer to go there.
 Regardless, cheers to all and stay healthy!                            Jon
Nice to hear from you. I always enjoyed your posts and helpful responses.

I am on here far less than I used to, because work slapped a filter banning visits to all alcohol related sites. :-[

While I agree it's just the new model of social interaction online, much in the same way web-based forums replaced usenet groups and email listservs fifteen to twenty years ago.

Ironically, the more social media develop the more they adopt forum-like discussion models with threaded responses and improved search functionalities.

I miss Tom Schmidlin's posts, but he went pro and doesn't check in.  Amanda was fun, too.

Agreed. Schmidlin's Sense of Humor is wicked.

I text him every once in a while. He's still a jackass. ;)

Nobody is looking for me, but I'm still in here on occasion. Spend a lot of my online time on killthecan.org, a nicotine cessation website and forum. And new in 2020, I've been on a keto based diet since March.  Down 30# and nearly no beer in that time frame. Still sitting on the bulk of the last 2 batches I brewed in January and February (going keto was unexpected  and only supposed to be for a month at the start) still love checking in here fairly regularly. No coivd in our household but the four of us did get tested when the youngest was exposed at work

Thanx Tommy. Plan on brewing for family gatherings for the holidays. I have a brand new unused Anvil Foundry that I'm itching to use. Bought it in November, set it aside for a bit then started keto. I'll get to it soon
