Curious what others do to pass the time.
I've brewed beer off and on (mostly off) for about 6 or 7 years now, but I'm starting to get a little more serious about it. I've stocked up on books and have been reading a ton about the process, and have brewed more this year already than I have the last several years combined. I've upgraded a lot of my equipment which makes for an easier brew day, as well as better beer. My latest batch (Jarrylo saison) was almost perfect on the gravity measurements (used to calculate ABV) and, after cracking on open last night, tasted great.
I also read a lot, as evidenced by the what are you reading thread.
I'm also gearing up with some basic woodworking tools as I ultimately want to build my own canoe in the future. Unfortunately I haven't had enough time to really get into the hobby yet. I am hoping I can ease into it starting this fall when the weather starts to cool down.
