  • I watched some stuff one youtube ect.. Then one day, I was cleaning out my dad's shed. I found a kit that someone gave him well over 8+ "maybe even 15+" years ago. It was one of the frist kits they sold back in the late 80's!! I still have not found a kit that looks like it. Only 2 Gallons. I brewed that "can".. Was not very good.. LOL!!

    After that I looked into homebrewing, and found the Reno home brew. I got my kit form him and start with malt can kits. I brew those for about 6 months every week or two! Got into all grains, I love all grain and ever going back! I try to brew every week.

But myself I have the room to do up to 28+lbs AG. So I see no reason to use sryup or DME other then higher alcy lev
