  • Posted in thread: Do we "think" too much about brewing beer? on 10-21-2014 at 11:37 PM
    I've posted about this before, I'm convinced there are distinct phases to the home brew
    hobby.When I tasted my first few batches of homebrew, I thought they all tasted great (though
    I'm sure they didn...

    I think it is a rather bold choice you made to diss automation on a post in the automation
    forum. I have found that automation in my brewing setup allows me focus on designing and making

    You picked a great kit to start with - you'll love that beer.Now brew your arse off - none of
    this stuff will really make sense until your 25th batch.Cheers!

    first place I wo...
