  • Co-worker introduced me to homebrewing by passing along a couple bottles of brew. That turned into a couple tastings at work on Friday nights. Which turned in to me researching homebrewing... and thru HBT, How-To-Brew and a couple YouTube videos, I took the plunge. I chose to do AG - it made the most sense to me, for how I wanted to brew. My first batch was a Scottish Ale, it went very well, and surprise surprise it was BEER!
