    Hello Everybody! I started extract brewing in 2008. I really enjoyed it and made some drinkable beers. My Daughter was born in 2010 and as so often happens life changed for us all. Fast forward to 2017 and I returned to my previous hobby. This past christmas I acquired the last pieces for an all grain set-up (except the burner but that is for another thread). I plan on doing my first all grain batch this weekend. I have no friends who are interested in brewing so I fly solo except for the help of my wife on bottling day.

    -Pete

    Welcome from Missouri. My wife helped on the first couple of batches and decided that was enough. Still supports my hobbies, just doesn't enjoy the process like I do.
    Lots of help here if you need it. Just ask. Enjoy and keep us posted on your progress.

    Welcome, I mostly brew solo but have some friends that drop by occasionally. I personally like brewing solo, I find it incredibly relaxing.

    I did have a friend help once. He actually did more harm than good.

    I had the best kind of brew friend. He showed up every time I bottled a batch. RIP Steve :( I don't bottle any more.

    A few good friends, one can't ask for much more than that. I like to share my brews with them, but my brew day is MY brew day. Nuff said!
