Hey everyone. After years of saying I wanted to homebrew (seriously, I've had Palmer's book for thee+ years), I finally bought a starter kit. It was an impulse buy at the time and as my scheduled brew day approaches I'm learning more and more that there's a lot I don't know.
I stumbled onto this forum after doing numerous brew-related searches. I've built a 60' wort chiller out of 3/8" copper tubing but outside of that I just have the starter kit and a turkey fryer w/30 qt pot. I'm definitely running a fairly bare bones operation but hopefully my first batch turns out ok (drinkable). I've chosen a Brewer's Best Double IPA kit to start with. If this works out, I'd like to try AG and work on some clone recipes.
Down the road, I'd like to build a ferm chamber since it gets pretty hot here in the summer months. I'm very hopeful that this will be an enjoyable hobby for me. Plus, I work across the street from a local brew shop, so that's convenient.
