Thanks, but really.... I never actually left... just didn't have much to say beside the fact that I have slow internet.  I've been really getting into all the cop shows though.   ;)   I love Tru TV and ID... but... they're trying my patience with all the re-runs already.   :D >:(

I use it for a night light when I "brew" overnight and there is no moonlight.

Not so much.  They do in a pinch. 

I'm really into lava lamps!   ;D

Heeeehaaaaaw!

Good to see you posting! I haven't brewed in six weeks at least!

I had a multi year hiatus on brewing as well, but I started again not long ago.  I never entirely gave up on the HBA crowd as these are the same folks that I started with back at NB.  I think of this place as a "little social club" where I kinda sorta sometimes fit in, brewing or not. 

Don't let a lack of brewing stop you from posting.  The brewing comes and goes as time and interest allows, the people you meet tend to be more important in my humble opinion.

I haven't brewed since February and that batch is still in the fermenter.  :o   Not sure whether its good or not... considering its been sitting on yeast all that time... doubt it.
Seriously Dean, depending on the beer and the temp it could be just fine or even really good.  The best way to find out is to taste it!

Glad to see you posting again. :)

I haven't brewed a batch in over a year. At least. My stockpile is all but gone.  :'(
Naw man, you're just on a break.  I haven't trained kung fu in almost a year, but that doesn't I quit doing it.  I plan to go back and I still talk to my brothers and Sifu at the school.  Can't force yourself to do it if you don't have the spirit, you have to have the itch.
Sorry to hear about the divorce though, that sounds s***ty.

Do you have ball lock or pin lock attachments on your head?  What's on tap?   :D 

Nah I just drive an oldschool wooden tap in with a mallet.

I took a year off once when I moved to NYC because I didn't have the space (I lived in a tiny studio apartment with a mini-stove). When I got back into it, about 6 months after I left NYC, it didn't take very long for me to (finally) switch to all-grain, start kegging, and get a temperature-controlled set-up.
