  • New-ish to the whole thing, been trying to get more adventurous and try out different beers, wine, meads, etc.
  • Really wanted to brew for a long time, finally just took the plunge with an Oktoberfest from a kit, and I was hooked. Next up was a Summer Wit, currently looking to try more small batches where I can find my niche beverage.
  • I'd like to try some ancient meads, a berry cider for SWMBO, and some harder beverages I can store for 21 years for my son.
  • Berry Cider, Butternut Squash Mead.
  • Currently empty.
  • Sweet Potato Wine.

    medicinal. So I...

  • Posted in thread: beginner's kit or something else? on 04-15-2009 at 03:00 AM
    I'm wondering if someone out there can tell me whether it would be better to buy a beginner's
    brewing kit from a homebrew store or not. I want to begin to brew my own beer, but money is
