  • I can't remember what got me into it. I think I came across an ad for Midwest in a magazine. (my first kit came from Midwest). I brewed my first beer in '95. I finally made the move to AG in the last few years. My favorite style of beer is English pale ales. I haven't gotten a tried and true recipe yet.

    That is what I use. Would I like a bigger pot? Yes. If I had to do it over again would I get a
    bigger pot? Yes. I have brewed with it for years though. If the 7 gallon pot was a real issue,
