  • I got in to homebrewing just by stopping in my local homebrew shop one day while on the road for work. Looked around the store and went to tell my friends about what I had seen. Come to find out a good friend of mine had been thinking about doing a homebrew. So a friend from work and my other buddy decide to all throw in together to get an equipment kit and some ingridients. We all get home to my house and start brewing. This was an english nut brown extract kit with some specialty grains. We had a blast! I immediately upgraded with another equipment kit to a glass primary and secondary fermenter. Now I have a partial mash nut brown ale ferminting. Since I now own a kit myself and a partial owner of another one I am looking foward to having more than one type of beer going at a time.

    you using for a mash tun? Do you have a false bottom or a manifold? Are you going to fly sparge
    or batch...

    is that offer to send the instructions for the barley crusher still good? I would love to get a
