I need a hobby

I need a hobby. Those of you who are FB friends, you’re already familiar with this. Those of you who are not, well, I need a hobby. Or three. I say three because sometimes I can get bored and fall into disinterest, thus the need to have something else to move on to and return to the first at a later time.

I’ve received a few suggestions, however none of them fit the bill. I need something that can take place in the evenings after work, preferably in one- to two-hour blocks. Brewing beer sounds like a frontrunner, although that’s not something you can do every day, unless you plan on brewing a ridiculous amount of beer, which I do not.

Perhaps brewing beer can be one of my hobbies … but what else? Any thoughts or suggestions? What hobbies do you enjoy?

Joe – if you’re listening, send me a shopping list of my initial equipment needs. Thanks.

    That is it. Pay no mind to the "deluxe" part, it is the basic kit. it is the one that i got and i am using it 4 years later (with a few nominal upgrades). VERY much a worthwhile hobby, as there is nothing quite like opening your first bottle of homebrew and relaxing. Word of warning though; your first batch will take around 3-4 hours to complete so do it on a weekend. i have oodles of resources if you wish, but i would recommend dipping your toe in the water before diving in.
