    Greetings and salutations! I'm new to the brewing game, going to tag along with my old man as he makes his maiden voyage on the good ship Homebrew. He's more of a connoisseur than I, I prefer lighter beers to his hop monsters - but I'm on the computer more than he is, and it's easier for me to get involved and relay information (read here: I sit and look pretty, he does the hard work. Ha!) Anyway, looking forward to discussions and any advice you all can give to the newbies - we really want to be successful at this, and have a shared hobby that we both enjoy. So hello to you all, particularly those of you from The Village, and from Ardendale. (I read books like he drinks beer.)

    Yes, deserts. Or so they tell me. Guess that would explain the god awful summer heat, but not the lack of cacti. Mostly just sagebrush annnnnd......not much else. We're not farmers or ranchers, so we need something else to entertain ourselves, and while away the hours. Enter beer.

    it's too large for you to recognize. if you saw it at 1/4 scale like you're use to, you'd realize what it is immediately.

    I'm pretty new around here but I can say this is the best brew forum around . . . fo sho. Any recipe I've posted has been received with warm support and helpful advice. The wife just made her first home brew, a brown ale - this past weekend. It is a great, rewarding hobby that lets your creative side flourish and so wonderful to do with the significant other. Sniff, sniff - gettin' a little 'motional here. Welcome!
