Well needless to say i am a newbie. Only on my first brew, only on this site for a week (if that), but I am ridiculously obsessed. Actually have been for months before I even made my first batch. Took me a while to get my equipment and whatnot, courage to take the leap, blah, blah, blah.
So I just met a fellow brewer at a copy shop in town and it was very random but also very profound. He was there to print some labels for his first brew. I was only making copies for my wife but that is beside the point. The point is that I feel like I am starting some new life. There are all of these brewers out there and I just put one foot into the proverbial door. I can’t wait to learn everything. I want to skip to all grain. I want to go automated. I want to make 50 gal batches. As I said, I am ridiculously obsessed.
I will have to refrain myself though, because - well for many reasons. Time, money, energy - you know, the practical stuff. Also because I want to be a good brewer and realize the necessity of learning along the way. Build a wall one brick at a time, right.
I laid my first brick and I can’t wait till I have myself a great big wall. For now I’ll start with opening my first homebrew in two and half weeks and go from there. With all that said, I just wanted to say hello to all of my new family.
