  • I've been toying with the idea of home brewing for a couple of decades. Then I found out that a friend of mine brewed and sat in on several brew sessions. I was hooked. Then I found that a new in-law also brewed. He was kind enough to donate some equipment, and my wife bought the rest of the gear I needed as a birthday gift. The history.

    I did a search of the thread and didn't see thermometer mentioned, so I'll go ahead. I'd like

    Update: When I discovered the spontaneous fermentation on Tuesday, I had already opened my

    I brewed an IPA with some friends last week (Friday) and realized after I got it in the bucket
