50 gallons TOTAL! man, 50 gallons at once in your home would be impressive. I brew in 5 gallon batches, and there's no pressure till it is bottled. Still, I've been very lucky.

Ah! Good!  Now I won't have nightmares about you being blown apart by beer. But it was the bottles that blew on us. Not just the corks, either. There was shattered glass and soggy, yeasty, near-beer everywhere. 

This sounds like one of those stories that begins....When I was in school, we didn't have no fancy-schmancy brew pubs, by golly. We had to brew our own... (Just wait till we have a story relevant to medical marijuana.)

I think we're meandering waaaay of topic here. I could go on and on and on about brewing and stuff. 

Somewhat related to my initial statement though, did you know there are still folks out there building processors in their homes? They aren't wafers or anything, but they are functional!

You're right: all this talk about beer is off base. So it doesn't surprise me at all, Caleb, that there are people building chips in their homes. I just hope they whip up some dip to go with them.  (Oh, that was bad. But hey, this is a story about beer so maybe we're on topic).

Seriously, I'm not surprised folks are making electronic chips either. Some people are just like that.  (I'd ask you for more info, but I get the feeling you're going to blog about this.)
