  1. From "Michael Ford" :

    My wife was wondering why Chris wears his wedding ring on the opposite hand. Sorry, women notice details like that. so i told her i would ask.
    I need to give sours a try again as it has been years. Like some of the pros, since becoming a homebrewer, i drink what i want to brew, and I am afraid of the bugs.
