    Been brewing as far as I can recall since at least 1995 but have always done extract or partial mash. Won an award once at the Alaska homebrew competition for my fall pumpkin ale but I think I've improved it since then. Just a casual brewer for home use and I keg only now. Don't take myself too seriously as far as tracking SG, alcohol content etc but I might do that if I brew up a reciep where its important enough to recreate exactly. Looking forward to exploring around this site!

    Welcome to the site! It sounds like you'll fit right in around here. We all love brewing for the beer of it, but nobody is too serious about it. At the same time, there's tons of practical and academic knowledge around here, so it's a lot of fun.

    Make sure you get a few more posts in and sign up for the Stir Plate giveaway, that's closing soon!

    Welcome to the forum! I'm pretty lax on my brewing anymore, unless its a new recipe, I pretty much roll with it as well!

    And if a question you have, ask away! We have a pretty good knowledge base here, and if nobody knows the answer, we can bull s**t pretty good here too!

    Welcome. Nice to have new members posting. And don't listen to those guys. They brew stuff like prison swill. They are also a bad influence, they post all the time, day and night, if they spent half that time actually brewing, they could open a 5000 bbl brewery. I'm on vacation and I'm checking the posts. See, bad influence, don't get sucked in, you can never leave.....
