I was an all-grain homebrewer 30 years ago for about a 2.5 year stretch (college age...). I was pretty successful and popular at the time, since nobody else was doing it. Fast forward to today, two kids approaching college, and I'm making a return to the home brewing scene. Much has changed in that three decades! My first batch will be a 3 gallon run of a chocolate porter - aiming for something like Hangar 24 makes. My wife and I love this kind of smooth dark ale. I've just about completed re-creating my setup: infusion mash, propane burner, two-stage fermenter. I'm using White Labs Burton Ale Yeast. Should be fun and maybe quite tasty, too. One of the things that's changed is the internet and cool places for brewnuts like this one. Mash day will be this Tuesday - wish me luck!
