    Okay I really just wanted to get another receiver for an ar15 and I thought why not get it engraved. I'm a big 1st amendment guy and I decided to go with something illustrating the 2nd amendment protecting the 1st

    And to balance the new we need a little old... I also found a family member who had his fathers old marlin 39 stored in the basement that was rusty and a little sad looking. I've taken it in temporarily to clean the rust off, make the wood a little nicer looking, put in a few parts that have went missing over the years and give it back in a silicone sock (after plenty of test firing of course.) I still want one.

    These are my first batches of mead, I'm more of a beer guy so I'm starting small to try to pin down the right amount of honey, how to best get oranges in, etc. The wait is killing me, at least when I make beer I know its not THAT far out.

    Toasted coconut porter is what I'm really craving today.

    You can make it fit, there were many times my tiny apartment had the kitchen counters entirely covered in bottles. I never did all grain in the apartment though, that would probably be hard :big grin: I hear you can make good brews from extract, steeping, or better yet partial mashes as long as the extract is fresh. I converted one of those orange 2 gallon gatorade thermos dispensers into a little mash tun and I think you could do some nice partial mashes with it.

    you can even use 2 liter bottles if you want

    I got a couple jugs of homemade mead from a friend a year or two ago. I think they made it with raisins, it was good but not great. I have a few friends that are really into it but I have been lazy about getting stuff together to start. There's a brew shop about 3 blocks from my house too so I really have no excuse :rofl:

    I have two beer projects I want to finish by the end of this year. Build my mini fridge into a kegerator and start brewing.

    Oh yeah, you've gotta go for it, brewing can be some work but its fun. If you need any cheap parts for your kegerator take a look at my page here, http://www.brewheads.com/kegerator.php its a couple years old by now so i imagine some prices have went up but its got some links to what are probably still cheap providers.


    WOMD, filled with pervs, alcoholics, and gun nuts :rofl:

    Alright, you've convinced me. As soon as my state taxes get back I'm going down to the shop to pick up the stuff. I just gotta tell myself this will be like getting into reloading...semi expensive to start but will pay itself off in the end with delicious, delicious beer.

    I think I may just give this fridge to my sister and pick up a new one. The one I have now has the stupid freezer portion and I hear that doesn't work so well with kegerators.
