Just returned a month ago from Sperwhan Ghar in South Kandahar. Not a nice place. I had planned exactly what my first brew would be and I used the California Common recipe out of one of the BYO mags that was sent to me while I was over there. I ordered the supplies from the computers when I was in KAF and I brewed my first weekend I was home. I just bottled it about a week ago and it looks great. Can't wait to get some down range. Also have a Maplfein or whatever it's called on the go with another buddy from my section I got into homebrewing. I got the recipe off the site but so far it looks great.
I know this is an old thread but I think the initial idea is great and extremely giving to those who serve. So to all those volunteers for this idea, thanks for supporting those who serve.
