Not just "Yes", "Hell, yes!"

As I began scrolling through this thread, I thought to myself, "I wonder if there are any 'how-to' VHS's or DVD's out there on the subject. In my other hobby, model railroading, I learned a lot and drew a lot of inspiration on making model scenery after viewing a VHS of a 'how-to' clinic on the subject. It was $24.95 well spent, IMO.

As the saying goes, seeing is believing.

Rhoobarb, Plainfield, eh!! Get ahold of me, I live in Crystal Lake. A few of us get together and brew and you'd be welcome to come out and help us brew and sample some too. We generally get together about once a month for a group brew , so PM me if your interested.

oh yeah. That'd be great.

edit: As long as you explain everything as you go. Even the simple things, 'cause I'm one of those people who tend to miss the obvious things. I can pay-pal you some cash for it whenever you get it done!

I remember having the same feeling... "is THAT all there is to it??"... There's really nothing wrong with extract brewing. People do it because they don't have the time... the space....the equipment.... And you can end up with a GREAT beer from extract. But if you have the space, and time to go all-grain, you won't ever regret it. To me, it's almost a spiritual thing. You can take four simple ingredients, time, and knowlege, and make a bev that's nourished people since before the pharoahs. How much closer to mother nature can you get?

well guy's, i tatsed my first all-grain brew Saturday (hefeweizen) and i am really happy with it. good body, head retention, color and flavor. this one blew up twice during primary ferm too! my second all-grain (amber ale) will be ready this Friday. my OG's and FG's were a little off, but real close. my ABV's are close to what i wanted, so i'm not going to complain. already looking at a three tier brew sculpture. my local HBC has a club blacksmith that biulds them for $300 bucks. all i do is supply the three 15.5 g kegs, temp gauges, propane tank, and burner. he's built about 15-20 of them and they are all working like a charm! nice systems too. can't wait

Cheers!
