    Welcome back. Maybe start working out with samplers (many) before hitting the pounders. :)

    Welcome back Crunk! I know well about shoulder injuries. After going deer hunting with a Harley Davidson instead of a Winchester, I ended up with a prosthetic shoulder implant. Don't get too aggressive with your rehab or you'll regret it.

    I do have to admit though my year off gave me time to study in a different way I continued reading many Brewing papers and books and after drinking most of the beer in my pipeline and critiquing it I have found myself preparing to make some small adjustments I will Brew two or three batches to get myself backup the game speed then I will begin making small adjustments a little bit at a time in hopes of improving the beer that I brew

    Speaking of the hellis I had one keg of it left that I placed in my Kegerator a month ago it had been sitting for almost the full year and it still tastes extremely fresh great aroma still a beautiful foamy head every single pore during all of my Brewing time I always found it very difficult to brew an Oktoberfest in March and wait until September to tap the keg this time that I spent waiting to put the last keg in my Kegerator of helles has given me the encouragement to wait the beer was definitely the most wonderful helis I have tasted from my Brewery yet there is much to be said about allowing a beer to condition itself in the keg.

    Nice. I feel you about the shoulder, I crashed a motorbike about 6 years ago and it took a solid 9 months for my arm to heal to a useful level. Even now it aches weird most of the time.
