  • I got into homebrewing after working in retail during the holidays and seeing the Mr. Beer starter kit on sale.

    My current "setup" is a 7 gallon primary unit, and a recently bought but unused 'secondary unit'.

    The first beer I made was a Coopers Wheat beer.

    My third beer was another letdown; a nut b

    The price on your link for me is $48--do you have an online coupon or something that reduces
    the price to $40? I'm looking to pick this up myself in about 10 minutes, hopefully I can save
    a few bucks ...

    bottles. Turned out great; I'm actually sharing the last four bottles with a friend this
    weekend, which i...
