I'm sure it's no great big deal, but a few things have popped up in my homebrewing adventure that I feel compelled to share!
Firstly, I joined the AHA yesterday! Wahoo!
Secondly, I will be attending my first meeting of the local homebrew club for Southeastern Massachusetts on April 12, it will be a tasting event that I plan to bring some 6 or 7 different types of my homebrew to. It'll be the first time I've shared my homebrew with anyone but family and the owner of Blackstone Valley Brew Supply (my LHBS) with. Very Exciting!
Thirdly, I've developed 2 original recipes so far, the first of which is currently on the stove coming to a boil! It's an American/English hybrid Oaked IIPA, the other recipe is for a Belgian Dark Extra Strong. Both recipes are posted on the Recipes forum if you care to critique them.
Fourthly, I will be visiting my local commercial brewery (hopefully) next weekend to share my brews. My stomach is all aflutter just thinking about it!
Finally, my wife and I have discussed it and if all goes well with her career and our family business I will be opening the first and only homebrew supply store in the New Bedford area within the next 5 years. (unless someone else beats me to it!)
I love homebrewing. Sometimes I feel like the hobby was made just for me!
Edit: As I was typing the last sentence my wort boiled over a bit. An unwatched pot *always* boils at the most inopportune time.
