I do all grain, and if you ever want to give it a shot I can lend you my gear so you can try it without buying in.
All-grain vs. extract is a bit like film vs. digital. In reality, it's a matter of personal preference, but people like to get all fired up and pretend that all-grain is better just because it takes longer. In reality, if you take two accomplished homebrewers -- one all-grain and one extract -- the difference between the two is so subtle that almost no one could tell the difference.
(Like film vs. digital, I tend to jokingly poke fun at extract brewers, but just like photography the proof is in the final product.)
So if you ever want to try all-grain brewing, let me know. It might be for you and it might not.
