    Anyone else here brew beer or mead at home?

    Anyone else her brew their own beer and/or mead at home? I've been brewing for about 20 years and just brewed a cherry honey wheat beer for my neighbor's birthday party and a mead (fermented honey) for my family for the upcoming holiday season. I'll post some pics of my setup later. Anyone else here into zymurgy?

    No other home brewers here? It seems like every other person I work with in IT is also a home brewer, so I thought there would be a few here, too...

    Welcome back, Art. It's great to see you posting again with the advent of Fall as you explained earlier.

    I'm not a home brewer, but I am interested in zymurgy only when I'm on this side of the bar ordering a quality wheat beer. Nectar of the gods I say!

    That's cool! I've never made wine but I've been brewing beer and mead for about 20 years. i stopped for awhile when our kids were younger but now that they are 21 and 18, we've got time for our hobbies again. I'll post some pics of my brewing setup soon, I brew outside and ferment in the garage, then store the beer/mead in 5 gallon stainless steel kegs (old soda pop containers), hooked to a small CO2 tank.

    Trying to upload pics...

    Thanks. I used to be able to post pics here but not recently. I'll look into it, but I'm getting a "Server 500" error on my side. I'll try it from here (work) and see if that makes a difference... Here's a test picture (our Daisy)...

    You may want to look at this, Art. There may be a fault happening within the system.

    Thanks for the link, but that's not my problem. I'm able to get the pop-up screen where I browse to the pic(s) that I want to upload, then select "upload" and near the end of the process, I receive the "Server 500 error". I'll try it again this weekend with a different browser. This has happened many times before and each time it resolved without me doing anything...

Just My opinion.. Windows in the Win8 version is not suited for home use any longer. It is overly complex, and, even for experienced Windows users, it is counter intuitive in many areas. I think Windows 8 has taken complexity “one bridge too far” for ordinary users. This comment by me, a MSEE...
