Not to be nosy, but what was the old hobby you're walking away from?
Ive been keeping Saltwater Reef Aquariums for the last 7 years, and decided it was time to take a break. Its a very time and financial consuming hobby.
I have kept an 80 Gallon and 120 Gallon Saltwater Reef Tank in the recent past, I feel you there.
Currently selling my aquarium equipment, just to much going on to be focusing time, money, and energy into aquariums.
Putting some of that money towards brewing equipment.
We entertain a lot, so brewing beer will be a fun hobby everyone can enjoy.
