Just purchased some wine making hardware and a Mr. Beer brewing kit to test it out. I also have a blog where I give some brewing information and brewing kit reviews to those who are new to home brewing. The address is:

  • Posted in thread: How much have you spent on equipment? on 03-26-2010 at 03:32 PM
    I don't feel so bad about my initial investment anymore. I spend way more on the ingredients

    money because I...

    Hey guys and gals,I was planning on doing one last extract kit, I've had just fair results in
    the past with these. My plan was to not use dextrose but another can of extract and to buy some
    quality ye...
