New to home brewing, I got into it by trying to make hard cider, which a friend told me was quite easy. After a few batches, I decided to upgrade to making beer! I had a lot of the equipment necessary by then, and cider is good, but beer is great! So far, just making malt extract batches.
I just got a small chest freezer and Im going to modify it with a external temp controller, so I have the perfect fermentation chamber! (its a little warm here) and Im very excited about that. Are there any brewers out there in Hawaii? What about Maui?
