  • I guess living in the land of a thousand beers has started to twist me brain. I have been reading up on all the different styles of beers and brewing don here in Belgium and decided that even though I might not be able to do it better, I can at least try to do it well.rnrnI will be ordering my Home brew kit after payday and hope to have a batch done in time for the 4th of July. If not, at least for the Dog Days of August.rnrnIf anyone out there home brews and has any advice or recommendations for a supplier that will ship to an APO please feel free to help me out.rnrnAs it stands now, I will be going with a equipment kit by Brewer's Best that contains a 5 gal secondary fermenter and some upgraded siphoning equipment. Looks like it will cost about $100 to brew my first batch.rnrnWell a few days ago I put my first brew into bottles, that was fun....I will be starting my second beer, a PM, on July 23rd.
