Huh?

Anyway, you're looking for a kit. Most homebrew supply places sell them. Some are pre-hopped, some aren't. Here's a bunch of suppliers: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/homebrew-supply-websites-701/

it says to make To make 5 gal, at least 2lbs of additional malt or sugar required. so can i just add 2lbs of sugar so i can make a 5 gal batch? if you had one of these what would you do?

2lbs of dry malt extract. Regular sugar will not make it any more beer like (per your request as seen in the first post).

Or buy kits from austinhomebrew.com They do an outstanding job and have hundreds of kits.

l recomend against one of the kits where you just dump on can of everything into the water. That being said buying recipe kits are easy and give you great results. Most of them include everything you need. (some even caps).

Someone had a link to Homebrewheaven.com The first good beer I ever made was with their IPA kit. It was very easy just follow the directions and ... delishious beer.

I have also made allot of bber from the kits at northernbrewer.com


If you still want to just dum a can into water and add the yeast, go to this site:

the ones labeled Master Class kits have everything, including all the needed malt.

hmm ok. how many gals would it make then, with out any extra malt? i wish i had a local store with recipe kits. maybe i will just look arround some more

Where are you located? You probably want to get a starter kit and then a beer kit. The beer kits include all of the ingredients you need minus the water. Look for a local homebrew store by you, if you can't find one then look to order online. I have never ordered a beer kit online so I don't know how they ship yeast or hops?

Ok... lets back up a few steps... since your asking how many gals they would make it certainly sounds as if we need to ask you another question.... you did not mention equipment... do you have equipment? What do you have?

As far as the question about which beer to make.... well I guess I'm always a little "Huh....:drunk: " when someone asks this question and a simple question to you will clear it up..... What do I like to cook? Umm... how about... What color should I paint my living room? Certainly you understand to answer this would be absurd right. You have no idea :) Ok... so it's best to start out with what you love. You go to the store and buy some beer... what do you buy? Should be an Ale cause thats the easiest to make. Then if you want the best selection and a reall good set of people to buy things from, go to Austin's Home Brew Supply: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/ The place is nice cause if you spend $60 shipping if free. As another reply said there are hundreds of beers to choose from here. With the beer you have in mind, the one you buy all the time that you love, go here: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/index.php?cPath=178_21_46_43 Find the beer you got in mind and you're all set. They are for 5 gals.
