Hello!

Post by C38368 » Sat Jan 02, 2021 8:19 am

Yet another year-end addition to the hobby; my better half saw fit to buy me a still for Christmas, soooo, here we are! Been brewing beer for about a decade now, and have recently branched out into meads. Guess I'm going to have to add rums and malt whisky to that list.

Only have about a million questions so far!

Welcome, only a million? Hopefully a lot of them will be answered through the required reading. Enjoy the journey!

Thank you! And yeah, only a million. Really, though, most of the ones that I haven't already sorted seem to arise from differences in culture and squaring the "way it's done" in homebrewing, versus the same in distilling :)
