  • I learned from another person at our community garden, growing his own hops and made 10 gals of all grain at the garden. rnHe gave me a couple of samples that he made, as good as any I have ever bought.rn 1 month later I started my first batch of partial mash a simple pale ale. So far I have made 7 batches all different. I even tried root beer. bought 2 used 5 gal kegs, now I need to build a jockey box. When it first became legal in Ca. my dad and his friend made bad tasting beer in about 10 days.
