  • Co-worker would talk about home brewing and it sounded like something I'd like to do. Took a few years but I finally decided to go for it. First batch was a Canadian Ale and it turned out well so here I am. I use a basic setup with 2 True Brew buckets. I'll stick with kits for awhile until I decide to get adventurous.

    Do you know if the TTB requires the brewery to be some certain number of feet away from your
    (or other) residences?I'm not sure about the distance, just that it has to be not connected to
