New Houston brewer

F

freeflynick

Hi folks!
I am a Scotsman in Houston (currently somewhere off the coast of Korea on a drillship, but usually in Houston!) just starting in the brewing world.  Got my first batch of pal ale bottled and waiting for my return (fingers crossed, coz I did all kinds of things wrong when making that one!!). Got a few friends in the area starting up as well, and if there are other locals who fancy going for a pint, give us a shout sometime - always willing to meet new folk and share experiences, brewing and otherwise).

Cheers!

Nick

Hey Nick, Welcome to the forum!
I am also in Houston, even in the same industry. I would be willing to meet up (When your back in Houston) for a pint. Every now and then I get together with friends and have a brew day. If your interested, Give me a shout!

Cheers
Preston

Welcome Aboard Nick! 

Don't fret too much about a couple mistakes.  After I made my first batch, I thought af about a dozen things to worry about.  The net affect was great beer and a passion for the hobby and improving.

Preston- look at the post before mine. Imike said "ok" out of context and then has an addspace type tagline

Shameful add space type tag lines not allowed: SOGOAK the killer pimp "NO LIKE!"

I think I found a new Sig! Thanks  ;D

--------------------------------------

Seriously tho. "IMO" Imike24 did not do anything wrong, I don't condone what he is doing. But everyone needs to eat and he is not panhandling on an of my corners that I can tell. I agree his main message was confusing but he did not tout any wares, nor was he advertising anything in his main message. I rarely look at tag lines anyhow. Most people put Useless Brewing (How ironic is that right? Seriously It's Not ME!) information there anyhow like something funny, or as a way of letting people know what they are brewing. Not that any of that is bad. I just find that it is Useless Brewing (Hmm 2 Shameful Brewery plugs in one paragraph NICE!) information so I skip it, and Yes I have done it before also just like almost everyone I know on different forums.

Cheers

Preston, hmm I guess I was having 1882 brewery withdrawal. 
Or maybe 1 too many 1882 APAs. Or these yummy belgian Brother Thelonius'

Ok in all seriousness, I apologize if I was captain hardass.

(See I got 2 plugs in too!).

I think my Cubbies open up downthere.  -opps there goes the thread hijacker again!
