  • A co-worker of mine started making his own wine. Making my own beer is something I always thought about doing but figured it was too difficult and that I wouldn't have the time to do it. I stopped in my local brew shop and spoke with the guy there, he got me setup with my first wheat beer extract kit (truebrew), and all the equipment I'd need.

    6 gallon food-grade primary bucket
    6 gallon carbouy
    Gas cooker (Wally World sold it as a fish fryer)
    4 gallon brewpot (an old lobstah pot I had)

    Absolutely not. Gelatin is not magic and makes haze helps the stuff fall out of
    suspension, and collect at the bottom of your keg (carboy, bucket, whatever). So if you put the
    gelatin i...

    Sorry if I missed it somewhere in this thread, but can we order the onesies yet? My brewbuddy
    just found out him and his wife were pregnant, and I'd love to get one for them!

    ajwillys, you're right, I don't think there is any difference other than IMHO convenience. I

    headache to me. I...
