  • My friend started doing it just before I left England to come and live here, and I got fed up with the cost of real beer. So I decided I wanted to try it, and my wife bought me a kit for my birthday.

    So far I've done a couple of kits, and concocted three very simple recipes.
  • More beer, that's more hoppy!!
  • Not really sure. I think it's probably most like a Pale Ale.
  • A Pale Ale (maybe) experimental concoction. Not too bad, but I didn't use anywhere near enough hops, no really I should have had two or three times as many. Doh!! Check the rating first!!

    a smaller wort.My first brew was from a kit that had me make 1-1.5 gallons of wort and then add
    enough w...

    Ah, ok. More good answers. That makes sense. I've just set off my second kit, so I'm pretty

    Hi everyone, I know I need to subtract the final potential alcohol from the original, but when
