Homebrewing Here I Come!!!

Ok, so today I went by my local homebrew store, Brewstock, and purchased some homebrew equipment and ingredients. This will be my first attempt at homebrewing other than the time my dad and I tried using a Mr. Beer kit. That beer turned out to be pretty crappy so I'm not sure to even count that as a homebrewing experience.

I hope to start brewing in the next couple days maybe even making a little brewing/drinking session out of it with a couple of friends. I'll be documenting my progress for this site the whole way regardless of the outcome! I want to thank Aaron Hyde over at Brewstock for walking me through my first homebrew buying experience. He even went so far as to write down a recipe for me to use and open an hour early to take care of me! I also picked up Charlie Papazian's Complete Joy of Homebrewing Third Edition to help me out along the way! Wish me luck!!!

Good luck with it. I'm sure you'll do fine and I know you'll enjoy it. Beer you make yourself is always pretty good if you ask me. But don't forget the most important rule: In order to make great beer, you must drink great beer while you make it. Otherwise the beer gods will not smile upon you.

That is awesome! I brew with friends, with their equipment. I keep telling myself that I am going to do it on my own. But I have yet to do it. You are inspiring me. Good luck!

Good luck and keep me up to date! Let me know if you have any questions!

Have you done this yet? That 'I MADE BEER' moment after first fermentation must be treasured like the birth of a beer flavour liquid baby.

Nothing yet. Just trying to find the time!!
