  • My wife bought me a Midwest kit for Christmas and the rest is history. I was very surprised (still am) with how easy it is to brew beer. My current setup is rather simple. I have a 4qt kettle, 6gal primary fermentation bucket, 6gal glass carboy, 6gal bottling bucket with spigot, and 4 cases of bottles. My next upgrade is going to be a keg system. :D
  • India Pale Ale, Nutty Brown Ale, Irish Red Ale, and my own special RSM Pale Ale. I am currently working on a new special recipe for my own RSM Brown Ale.
  • Don't have a keg system yet.

    Drop the Vienna and Rye down a bit and increase the Pale, then add a bit more hops to balance
