  • I tried homebrewing with a friend of mine using a Mr Beer kit. After 2 tries that came out sour we gave up. Years later when I was dating my wife, she encouraged me to try again. We took a class and she bought me a kit.

    I've brewed this recipe twice before, and it is quite good. Now I'm looking to up the mint
    flavour through hops. I've heard that Northern Brewer and Fuggles can give off minty flavours.
