  • Just got curious and bought a kit and made an IPA which turned out to be one of the best beers I've ever had. So I pursued to make a few more and me nor my friends have been disappointed yet. Overtime I am accumulating more equipment and improving my brewing methods. Much to the help of all of you here at HbT.

    definitely miss the beer scene down there so I go back once a year. Welcome to the forum and
    the obsession.
