  • A friend tried to get me into brewing some 20 years ago with a cheap, expired kit. Complete with no boil and table sugar. I was not convinced that it was a worthwhile hobby. 10 years ago I bought me a Papazian book and discovered better beer. On the brink of going all grain I stopped brewing. 7 years later I am back.

    I used Bry for the first time a few weeks ago. It was a full 48 hours at least before I saw any
    action at all. Once it got going it went crazy. I've never seen so much action last for so

You can't be a Real Country unless you have a BEER and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a BEER. Frank Zappa
