I'm 55 years old and new to brewing. I went on a trip to St. Louis last fall with one of my sons. Among other things we visited some distilleries and breweries down that way and got inspired to try homebrewing. We started last December and have some successful extract brews in the fridge and ready to give all grain a try. Just bought a Brewer's Edge Mash and Boil we'll be breaking in this weekend. Other than brewing and/or drinking beer, I'm a huge Green Bay Packers fan (yes, a Packer Backer in Chicago) and gearing up for a vacation trip to Alaska this summer.
