  • Just getting started "home" home brewing. previous experience at a local "Ubrew". Great place but bar tab was killing me and it was a long drive home to be that "happy", if you know what I mean.

    Just started brewing at home with the thought that if I enjoy a bit too much, all I have to manage is some stairs.

  • Last year was invited to a "Ubrew" place where you brew the batch, they store the batch and clean up behind you. Great fun and a good way to see if a person would like brewing themselves. The killer for me was the drive home after brewing and bottling and the bar tab brewing.

    I started to look at home brewing while visiting my son in St. Louis this past summer. His girlfriend bought him a starter brewkit for his birthday (is that a great girlfriend or what?) and while visiting, I read more and more and got the "bug".

    So after a bit of research, I started up making my own beer. This fits my personality as I am a "do it yourself" personality type. Cooking, cars, construction, just about anything I try to see if I can do it too.

    Just kind of skimmed your post, but to the OP, if you plan on doing what you said you wanted to
    in your kitchen, better check with your home owners policy. There's a reason the gas is what it

    Spend $20 for a refractometer. They are easier to read, use less beer and most look like a mini
    lightsaber... You're close enough on your numbers as others pointed out could be your water

    I think this will be tightly called today. The CR is the one who missed the "bite" and the
    fallout over the knee to the back non call, non card in the other match. There has been so much

    In the Mexico game all you can do is ask the referee to be consistent. Something that is not a
    foul in the first ten minutes should not become a foul in the last ten minutes. Players will
