  • Just got sucked into homebrewing. I was in a bed,bath, and beyond store when I noticed they had Mr. Beer kits on sale for $5. Just couldn't resist. I immediately started a fermentation. I looked at Mr. Beer on the internet, saw prices for kits, and immediately called the store to buy up their remaining kits but alas someone beat me to it. A week later I got an email from a company that was having a special on an all inclusive brew kit and got really hooked. It came with an Irish Stout kit which I brewed and is now bottled and aging. M waiting for some new ingredient kits.
  • I have ordered ingredients for a Pliny the
    Elder clone, and a pale IPA. Next I will tackle a wheat beer.

    Yes I know what you mean. I had had several fermentations which looked like snow storms in one

    and the beer...
