was pouring over my old brew logs; I still use pen and paper for all my recipes and brew days. Celebrating 10 years as a homebrewer.
Really don't know where all the time went! brewed very consistently for those years- there's about a year of lag time, but then again I had a gig where I was traveling for work- example, was lucky enough for 6 months, was only 3 hours away from home, so those weekends I shot home, a brew session was in order.
I've learned a lot in that time. thought it would be a great way to save a couple bucks (LOL). but the more I learn, the more I find out that I don't know. Made some great beer, some OK, and a few batches of trash. Even have a few blue ribbons from competitions, and did a pro-am with a local brewery. it all started from a love of beer, and watching a couple videos on YT from a guy who goes by the handle CriagTube.
It's funny, when I started, It was all about malty, English/Irish ales. moved onto big, high octane barley wines, discovered water chemistry, then got into Hoppy beers, lagers, session beers and sours.
really grateful that I found this hobby. It constantly challenges me to be a better brewer.
Here's to the next 10 years. Cheers!
