  • 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.
