  • I got into brewing at a BYO facility that allows you to use their equipment. They walk you through the brewing process and do all the cleanup. I brewed there for about 3 years now and decided it was time to branch off on my own. I have been brewing extract with specialty grains for a while now and I'm laying the foundation to get started on all-grain brewing.

    I currently have a True Brew 6.5 gal plastic brewing kit with a glass carboy secondary.
