  • I initially started brewing several years ago. Bought my first kit from a company named Kraus (?). First batch was good. Probably didn't sanitize my second batch enough and it was a disaster. My cousin bought me the Mr. Beer kit for Christmas ('09). Put it in the basement for awhile. Just bottled it today (6/26/10). Also bought a 5 gal/23 Liter kit from Cooper's. Have to create some space in the basement after I clear it with the wife.

    I use a two quart iced tea pitcher to make my starters. Right after I drop the stir bar in, I
    put on the lid and turn it to strain liquids.

    I used to use 16 oz. brown PET bottles from a LHBS. Then I started using 20 oz. soda bottles.
    I've had a Cooper's bomber blow the bottom out, so I like to use the clear bottles to see when
    it's time t...

    Sitting to pee does not make you not a man. *shrug*I've been sitting to pee (at home anyway. At
    home, not in public.) since I had back surgery in '94. I figure, since I'm in the "library"
    I'll take th...

    Break time. Look what I made!Funny. I think it's art, the wife thinks it's disgusting. She's

    effects or ma...

    $100?! Man, that's nothing! A few years ago my daughter was given a goldfish for Christmas. I
    felt sorry for the thing in the little bowl so we got a bigger tank. And a bigger rank.
    And....realize I h...
