Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!! I've always just been an extract brewer. Haven't had the gumption to brew mine from scratch.

Well, since I signed it already, and I bet buckytom did too, I think we've already started the ball rolling on that one! Don't worry about what else is in the box - wait till you see it!

Ronjohn, great photos!

Ok guys. Im on board. But I dont have a camera. I'll have to have my buddy take it. Maybe I'll take it infront of Wrigley Field. Or the Chicago Skyline. Then again there is this Irish pub in Naperville. Any place in Chicago I should take it in front of? Im doing requests.

Not quite a still, it's missing a few necessary components to functionally distill anything. Not that I, um, know anything about that kinda stuff...


And phinz or anyone else, if you're ever in the area and want to arrange a tour of the brewery, drop me a line and we'll see if we can arrange a demo and tasting...

I think either in front of the Sears Tower....or perhaps Wrigley Field....anything, so long as you're there!

(although it would be cute to go to the pub and pose with a few bar maids!)

NOT IN AN APRON!!!!! well, not right away anyway.

geez, sush, don't listen to jkath for advice on how to meet women. i think she means well, but i might be getting fooled too. it's so hard to tell.

don't listen to any woman for advice on that, except maybe your mom. even your sisters will lead you astray, for revenge purposes. it's their evil plan, all of their plans. no, not world domination, but to make us crazy; dangling the carrot and making us jump through flaming hoops, just for the pleasure of being able to do it.

if you have to tie in, as it were, a chick with the apron thing in a pub, tell them a fantastic lie about why you need to have a picture with them only after buying them a drink or 3, all the while being very complimentary on stuff like their hair and clothing (not the eyes, that's overdone. and don't overdo the clothing thing, that could look, well, ya know, swishy).

lemme think: you are a well travelled but poor, soul searching chef, who's made his way around the world seeking wisdom, and the ultimate recipe.
we can all help you fill in the lies for particular stuff that only a local from that region would know.
a good coupla backed up references, and they'll be like ducks in a row.

then, you could mention a website that greatly values your worldly wisdom has requested you send in a picture with the apron on one of your travels.
