  • Basically I was bored. Thought it would be cool to try so I bought the book, "How to Brew". Got about 3 chapters in and put the book down and ran to the store to buy my starter kit. I've been brewing a few times a year since then. (still not a lot, only been doing this for about 2 1/2 years).

    freeze resistant and at least would allow three seasons of convenient access to water.PEX is

    I live in the country and have a well for water. So I have no idea what's in it really. We have
    a pretty elaborate water system that includes addition of HCL, chlorination, carbon filtration,
    and most...

    I have one of those Escali scales in silver. My only complaint is when I'm measuring out grain,
