Thread: Thanks For The Forum!

    Default Thanks For The Forum!

    Just wanted to say how VERY VERY happy I am to have this forum and website. I've just started making mead and the info on the site/awesome people have helped tremendously.

    I can't wait to learn, drink, and have fun!

    I agree with you! Vicky and Pete deserve great thanks for providing a site that allows learning to be fun, and where science, art, and general jackassery can meld together beautifully.

    Indeed, even the premium patron fee seems cheap after all the pitfalls I've avoided thanks to this site (and thus money). Without this place I probably would have only ever made a few small batches that would have turned out poorly.

    A hearty thanks from me as well. I am a recent addition to the Patrons. The way I looked at it, I payed $XXX for the equipment to make the mead, another $25 is a small price to pay for knowlege and expertise. Can't wait to feel like part of this community (read as "drinking my own mead as I discuss the art").

    It is an awesome site. I have a good number of people in the Ren community (many of which have tried to make mead in the past) ask me for tips. I always refer them to this site and Ken's book.

    General jackassery?

    Speak for yourself, sir. Ahem.




    Okay, okay, speak for me, too, yeah, I have to admit.

    Sigh.

    You could always refer them to that fella I met on Saturday.

    Jeepers Mr. Beebody! That's sure a long time and several iterations ago. Pretty a-mazing to think how we got from there to here isn't it?
