Thanks for the follow up on JD.. Good that we keep in touch with each other.. We do this right gents, you guys all get what im saying here.. Nice to know that we "check" on each other..

Statement of fact here.. This friendship we've developed over the years is in no way a fabricated "net crap" thing.. I know in my heart that should i ever really "need" help all i would have to do call..

I've deleted a page or so.. Some things don't have to be said, and i don't want to run the risk of cheapening them by doing so.. nuff said..

Brownies.. nah bro, just inhale.. on the watermelon stuff.. never made home brew.. Milwaukee's best is cheap enough at walmart.. and i don't think it's made in China..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

came over to help me drink it so disposal was left up to me. I 'spose they would have come over if I'd told them what I had :<)
Cleaning up was a hassle and ordering just the right ingredients sometimes did not work out ;<(
I very much like dark Ale. Mead always sounded delicious but never made any.
I gave my brewing gear to my son, I'm out of the business and he never got started. He's a Corona drinker. No wonder he don't brew, he can't make Mexican Pig Piss with the setup I gave him LOL!!
