About once a month I brew 5 gallons of beer and I am getting pretty good at it, before I moved to Albany one of my stouts was in the top 20 out of 250+ beers in the local competition. I am a bit of a handy man, I designed and built most of my home brew system. I also designed and built a kegerator which may be my favorite thing in my apartment. I have been trying to nail down my sour recipes with varying degrees of success. If I could have 5 gallons of Berliner Weisse on tap I would be so happy.
Movies: I have a hard time watching movies alone, I usually end up grabbing a book or something to work on and in the process I start missing important scenes. However, I do enjoy any Monty Python, anything by Mel Brooks, Dark Knight series, and The Lord of the Rings to name a couple.
Books: Far too many to list but here a few The Lord of the Rings, military and naval history from WWI and WWII, random non-fiction I find on my NOOK. I did just finish a fascinating history of the decipherment of the Maya script and started a general history of the Vikings.
