I'd have to agree with you that it's hard to follow if you don't know how to read and haven't graduated from middle school yet......according to the media you kids are walking ATM machines...

In all seriousness, I don't think there is one brewing member here who would ever waste their time and $$$ on a project like this one. That shows good judgement, intelligence and maturity.

Can I borrow 20 bucks to make real beer?

Are there any kits which can be made from common house-hold items or cheaper kits because money is a little tight right now... I am about to leave for Marine boot camp, so all of my finances are going straight to paying bills ahead, since my recruiter didn't tell me that your payments can be frozen in bootcamp. Does anyone have any simple beer recipes or ideas on how to make a brew setup? Sorry if it sounded like I was being rude to you guys earlier, I was simply talking about the other man's instructions from that site.

Thank You

So was I. Those instructions are pretty easy to follow. You gave "hydrating yeast" as an example of something that was not clear. Here's what the author had to say:

"If you want the yeast to work properly, you need to HYDRATE it first. Follow the directions on the package in order to do this properly. If you're too lazy to follow them precisely, just pour some warm water into a cup and then dump the powder into it. DO NOT STIR the yeast right away - For best results, give it time to hydrate on its own before messing with it."

yup... thay should have you covered for everything... except bottles... you'll need to gather or buy empty NON-TWIST-OFF bottles to put the beer in when it's done fermenting. You'll need about two cases of bottles for a 5 gallon batch of beer.

It does my heart good to see all you guys leading a newbie down the road to disfunction. Keep up the good work!

He might already be dysfunctional. We're just helping him learn to make beer.

Yea. I gues everyone starts off like I am. The instructions about hydrating the yeast were confusing, because I thought yeast was very delicate and could be destroyed if too much or too little water, and when to place the sugar ETC.
