yeah, I wasn't great at chemistry in the past. Theoretical math was okay, but not chemistry.
I've been studying brewing chemistry as part of my ABG program and it makes a bit more sense to my older brain than it did to my 20-something year old brain.
I'm more relaxed in my garage brewing than anywhere else. I just get obsessed with little things and cannot get them out of my head until I understand them. It's probably a sign of mental illness, but it makes me good at my job and other detail-oriented things.
I'd hang with the no-pants, but I'd rather not muck-up any of my kilts. Also... below freezing in garage some days. YIKES! On those hot carolina summer days I have seriously considerred it. 105F in the garage is brutal.
