  • I got into home brewing back in 1989 in Boston. I brewed about 5 batches. Only a couple were any good. I started brewing again in Spring 2009. I am amazed that I am able to produce such good beer now. I was really just doing it for fun, but this is really good beer. I can't stop now! I've jumped into all-grain. Made an MLT out of a 5 gal. Rubbermaid. I was contemplating going bigger, but recent events, time constraints, and space requirements have dictated I go smaller. So, I bought some 3g Better Bottles, and I haven't looked back. This stuff just keeps gettin' better.

    put the bottling bucket on the counter, sit next to the open dishwasher, and pull the bottles
    and fill. I'm...

    stored until...
