Hey guys, just had quite the score! BEVMO is selling their Brooklyn Brew shop kits half off right now. Their recipe books are $5 and the ingredient kits a $5 instead of 14.99. So I picked up a book and another bourbon dubbel. I don't know if its all stores but its a least northern Ca.

I'm getting one of the starter kits from Small Batch Brewing. I have read good things about Northern's Caribou Slobber and was wondering if their 1gal kits would be ok with the equipment or if the fermenter too big.
I am going to start with the ingredients form SBB and then maybe try other kits.

Yeah... In Chicago we have to deal with stuff you like don't see much of in NorCal.

I grew up in the Bay Area, and moved to Chicago in February many years ago.

Oh boy, what a surprise.

Question! Are you guys using extract kits, partial mash, or doing all grain? I do 1.75 gallon batches so I'm pretty much in the same game as you guys, but I do AG and make up my own recipients.

I'm doing all grain and make up my own stuff(with heavy influence from other sources)

doing all of the above. enjoyed all of the small batch brews so far.
some kits from online (extract) such as hop zombie, bisquits n' honey and dead ringer and made a few of my own from the clone brews book which I scaled down (noche beuno (PM), negro modelo, and an extract sweet stout). have "kits" ready to brew that I made for Yards pale ale clone (PM) for 2.5G and several other 1.25G batches (AG, PM & extract)
also can't wait to order in the ingredients and try the smaiclause clone from clone brews for a 1.25G batch. Long 1 yr wait
