  • Started making cheese in August 2009. Thought about beer for a while. Bought the kit for my Boyfriend for Christmas 2010 and started our first brew early January. Immediately expanded from just the kit to a total of 2 plastic pail fermentors and 2 carboys, and a wort chiller. After an extract, a partial grain kit and a cider I went AG.
