Been a while since I posted. Recently went through bankruptcy and moved from hobby farm into a small city closer to work. Settled in although I can't stand the city. But it was best financially.
I entered a hommade beer, a sweet stout, into a local homebrew contest and it took 2nd place in the stout division. First time I ever placed and only 2nd competition I ever entered so pretty cool. With the holidays coming up I made a pumpkin pie ale and it is ready to drink. Tastes awesome. Made more of the stout, and a mild ale, and have some Dandylion wine bottled and some elderberry wine in the fermentor so by the time I have my surgery I will have a good stock of "painkiller" on hand!
Surgery is set for monday Nov 24th with one day stay in hospital.
Meamwhile it's football and beer till then!
