Actually, most of the times, it's me. I thought about not posting that, but I was tempted to :P

I dabble in golf a little, and I've just begun power lifting
But my real hobby is brewing, I'm considering leaving my programming job to try and crack into a career in brewing (might do a degree in brewing first)
I've built myself a 60 litre All Grain brewing rig, much to my wife's protest
Just kegged a batch of Aussie/American Pale Ale on friday which tasted amazing even before it was fully carbonated and had time to settle

I like to mess around with motorbikes and cars in my spare time, take apart, clean etc.

Just bought an old motorbike that's not been used since 2007 and is about 23 years old, for a nice renovation project.

How about I test it in the environment in which I'll be using it? You can call it Accessibility testing even!

interesting fact, exported beer never tastes the same as it would in it's home country
infact most craft brewers refuse to export because you're not tasting the flavours they've intended you to taste (due to heat and light affecting the condition of the beer)
hence why a lot of big name "Premium" (read: bland, boring lagers) beers are now made locally in different countries under licence

Looks like there are quite a few homebrewers here. I also like making my own homebrew, I live in an apartment now so I don't have the room needed for All Grain methods and just do extract brewing. After I buy a house and move into it, hopefully sometime next year, I will upgrade to an all grain setup.
Lets see, I have a bunch of hobbies that I do to fill my free time after work or when not coding for fun. I also workout almost every day and play tennis, volleyball, and golf. I would like to get into competitive beach volleyball, but unfortunately I live in the wrong area for that. I have lately also gotten into playing guitar more. I have messed around with guitar since high school(10 years ago), but have never really practiced or learned whole songs. However when Rocksmith came out I picked it up for PS3 and it makes learning songs on guitar so much fun. I also play lots of video games, it used to be lots of Starcraft 2, but now it is mostly Dota 2, League of Legends and some random games on steam that I impulsively buy during the steam sales.

Anyone here interested in robotics? I've always wanted to do some small scale robotic projects just to learn and have something to show for it. Also I like hobbies and projects that incorporate loads of differen't skills, like this could include soldering, electronics, programming, plastic/metal work for your own cases etc.

Stumbled across this tutorial which I might follow and build on with my own ideas. Could make a cool present for my nephew.

Being Metal Gear is just fiction in a video game - wouldn't you be making it for the first time and not a replica?
